After Unprecedented Firings of General Counsel and Deputy General Counsel, President Biden Names Peter Sung Ohr Acting General Counsel of the NLRB
President Biden named Peter Sung Ohr as Acting General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board today. Ohr is a career employee of the NLRB, having served as a Field Attorney, Deputy Assistant General Counsel in the NLRB’s Division of Operations-Management, and as Regional Director of the Board’s Chicago Regional Office.
Biden’s action comes after firing NLRB General Counsel Robb and naming Member Lauren McFerran, the lone Democratic member of the Board, as the Chairman, on his first day in office, and firing NLRB Deputy General Counsel Alice Stock on his second day in office.
As always, we will continue to monitor developments in the composition of the Board.
