President Trump has nominated William J. Emanuel to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to fill the expiring post of Vice Chair Kent Yoshiho Hirozawa. If confirmed by the Senate, Emanuel would serve a term of five years, expiring on Aug. 21, 2021.
Emanuel has argued cases before the NLRB for many years on issues such as employee class and collective action waivers. Multiple cases he was involved in have made their way before the Supreme Court. Emanuel has been described as a management-side labor attorney.
