Foxx, Walberg: “It’s a New Day at the NLRB”

WASHINGTON – Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), chairwoman of the Committee on Education and the Workforce, and Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI), chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions, issued the following joint statement after the Senate confirmed William Emanuel to fill the remaining vacant seat on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), giving the board its first Republican majority in nearly a decade.

“It’s a new day at the NLRB. Today marks the end of a partisan era at the board, where we saw an activist agenda that empowered special interests at the expense of hardworking men and women. As the committee continues to undo the damage that’s been done, we look forward to finally having a fair and balanced board that will serve as an impartial referee and protect the rights of workers and job creators.”
