The White House is considering California agriculture lawyer Mike Stoker for an upcoming opening on the National Labor Relations Board, sources familiar with the situation told Bloomberg BNA Sept. 29.
Stoker, who has represented farming industry advocacy group UnitedAg among other clients, is one of at least two lawyers in the running for outgoing NLRB Chairman Philip Miscimarra’s (R) seat. He was previously chairman of the California Agricultural Labor Relations Board and twice ran unsuccessfully for the state legislature as a Republican.
“We have no personnel announcements at this time,” a White House spokesman told Bloomberg BNA. Stoker didn’t immediately respond to Bloomberg BNA’s request for comment.
Republicans recently took majority control of the five-member board for the first time in more than a decade. The board is expected to eventually use that majority to reconsider a wide range of Obama-era decisions, including those to expand joint employer liability for affiliated businesses, recognize “micro-units” of workers for collective bargaining, and strike down employment polices that infringe on workers’ collective rights.
John Ring, a management-side lawyer for Morgan Lewis, is also said to be up for the seat when Miscimarra’s term ends in December. President Donald Trump has already filled two spots on the board with William Emanuel (R) and Marvin Kaplan (R).
