New Members of NLRB Are Sworn In

On January 9, 2012, the three recess-appointed Members of the National Labor Relations Board were sworn in and assumed office.  The Board was down to two Members and thus unable to function for only about six days.  At the moment the Board is up to full strength.  However, it is anticipated that there will be challenges to decisions made by the Board based on the manner in which the President made the three recess appointments.
