Breaking news . . . Wilma Liebman’s term expires! – NLRB Chair Wilma Liebman’s third term expired midnight Saturday, August 27. A Clinton appointee, Liebman was on the Board 14 years and was strongly pro-union. Meanwhile, ultra-pro-union Craig Becker’s recess appointment will expire at the end of the year. We’ll keep you informed on the political maneuvers and machinations, but we expect the Republicans in Congress to do what they can to avoid giving President Obama the opportunity to make any more recess appointments. If Liebman and Becker are gone and not replaced, the Board will be left with only two members – Mark Pearce, a Democrat, and Brian Hayes, a Republican – and no authority to issue decisions. Pearce has been designated the new Chair.
