With a 50-48 vote along party lines, on April 11, 2018, the United States Senate confirmed management-side labor lawyer John Ring as the newest member of the National Labor Relations Board. With Member Ring’s confirmation, the NLRB is now back to full strength with five members, comprised of three Republican-nominated members and two Democrat-administration appointees. This Republican majority is anticipated to roll back many of the NLRB decisions and policies issued by the Board during the Obama administration that were viewed as tilting the deck in favor of unions and employees.
