NLRB Vacancies: The Potential For Big Changes in Labor Union Law

NLRB Logo 2/1/09: The Nation­al Labor Rela­tions Board (NLRB) con­sist of 5 mem­bers, and the NLRB issues impor­tant deci­sions on a broad range of labor union issues.

There are cur­rent­ly only 2 mem­bers, so there are 3 vacan­cies. Wilma Lieb­man is con­sid­ered lib­er­al and pro-union. Peter Carey Schaum­ber is con­sid­ered con­ser­v­a­tive and pro-man­age­ment.

Pres­i­dent Oba­ma will be able to fill the 3 vacan­cies, with a like­ly sig­nif­i­cant shift in labor law in the Unit­ed States.
