Coalition for Democratic Workplace Applauds Trump Administration Nominee to NLRB Board

Washington, D.C. – Today, the Trump Administration announced the appointment of Marvin Kaplan for the National Labor Relations Board.  In response to the announcement, the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace released the following statement from Chair Kristen Swearingen:

“President Trump stands firm in his commitment to the American people with the nomination of this highly-qualified member to the NLRB.  Marvin Kaplan will begin to restore balance to an agency whose recent and radical decisions and disregard for long standing precedent have injected uncertainty into labor relations to the detriment of employees, employers and the economy. 

“We are confident Mr. Kaplan will interpret the National Labor Relations Act in a manner that is fair to workers, unions and employers. The nomination is another signal that this Administration will make reforms that will restore jobs to the American people.

“The CDW supports the nomination of Marvin Kaplan to the NLRB and urges the Senate to move quickly confirm this nominee.”
