On April 24, 2009, President Obama nominated Craig Becker and Mark G. Pearce, both Democrats with strong union and pro-employee backgrounds, to fill two of the three current vacancies on the National Labor Relations Board. If confirmed, they will join Chairperson Wilma Liebman (Democrat) and Peter Schaumber (Republican) on the Board, resulting in a Democratic working majority. By law, no more than three Board members may come from the same political party; thus, while President Obama has not announced a final nominee, the nominee will not be another Democrat.

"I have enjoyed receiving the Lexology newsfeeds over the last few months and in general find the articles of good quality and relevant. I like the fact that the email contains a short indication of the subject matter of the articles, which allows me to skim the newsfeed very quickly and decide which articles to read in more detail."
