Lauren McFerran Confirmed to NLRB by U.S. Senate

By Edwin S. Hopson

On December 8, 2014, the U.S. Senate voted 54 to 40 to confirm Ms. Lauren McFerran, a Democrat, to be a Member of the National Labor Relations Board. This keeps in place the Democrats’ majority on the Board – three Members to two Republican Members. Thus, the pro-union agenda of the Board will continue.
