Mark Gaston Pearce, a rabid supporter of union boss schemes and forced dues, withdrew his name from consideration for a place on the National Labor Relations Board. Nominated by President Trump, Pearce is known for the many decisions he made blatantly favoring unions at the NLRB during the Obama Administration, including the Browning-Ferris decision.
“Mr. Pearce’s withdrawal from consideration of another NLRB term comes as much of a surprise as his renomination itself. Mr. Pearce explained that he felt it best to “remove myself from the center of a political tug of war that has spanned five months,” although he still hopes the Board returns to a full five members. Sole Democrat Member McFerran’s seat will expire in December 2019. President Trump may delay filling one or both of these seats; no new nominations have been made as of this time.”
