The Senate on Monday, Sept. 25, confirmed business lawyer William Emanuel, President Trump’s pick to fill an open seat on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), by a vote of 49-47.

The vote puts the board, the nation’s top labor law enforcement agency, under the control of Republicans, 3-to-2, for the first time since President George W. Bush’s administration.

The newly constituted board is expected to reconsider Obama-era rulings involving unionization, the definition of joint employer, and other employee-friendly rulings.
