Senate Approves Administration’s Labor Nominees

This week, the U.S. Senate approved John Ring to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Ring is a former management-side labor attorney and provides the NLRB with a full complement of board members. The now 3:2 Republican majority board has important decisions ahead of them, including the possibility of revisiting the joint employer definition and the quickie election rule.
The Senate also approved Pat Pizzella for Deputy Secretary at the Department of Labor. The position is the second highest political position and is the latest high-profile administration position to receive political leadership. AGC is monitoring other agencies still lacking political leadership, including OSHA and the Wage and Hour Division. There is no timeframe for when the respective nominees may receive senate votes.
