The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee on July 24 voted 13-9 to send President Obama’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) nominees to the floor for confirmation by the full Senate.

Democrats Kent Hirozawa and Nancy Schiffer were expected to be confirmed by Aug. 2, when the Senate plans to adjourn for its annual August recess. Also slated for confirmation are Republicans Harry Johnson and Phillip Miscimarra, and current NLRB chair Mark Gaston Pearce, a Democrat. Hirozawa is chief legal counsel to the NLRB chair. Schiffer is chief counsel of the AFL-CIO. Johnson and Miscimarra are management-side labor lawyers.

If all are confirmed, the NLRB will be fully staffed for the first time in 10 years.
