The names of President Trump’s final two nominees for the NLRB Board have been advanced by the US Senate Health Education Labor & Pension Committee and will go before the full Senate for a final confirmation vote soon. Attorneys William Emanuel and Marvin Kaplan were both approved by a party line vote of 12 – 11 earlier this week. Final confirmation, which is not yet scheduled, will likely occur within the next week to 10 days, giving President Trump a true majority on the NLRB. Notwithstanding the strong credentials that both nominees bring to the position, it appears that their approval will come on a close-to, if not straight, party-line vote. As the President would tweet: “Sad!”
