The Changing Rules and Politics Surrounding the NLRB

Chicago Daily Law Bulletin
December 9, 2011

Dave Radelet was quoted in the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin on December 9 in an article reporting on the changing rules and politics currently surrounding the NLRB.  Dave commented that the political gridlock in Washington may mean the NLRB could lack a quorum for an extended period of time.  The first chance a president might get to nominate and receive approval for a new board member could be after the 2012 election, he said.  “Another recess strategy might be an option, but the politics might not allow (President Obama) to do that,” Dave said, adding that he anticipates that the board will shrink to two members at the end of the year.
