FIRED!!! President Bidens Fire Peter Robb at the National Labor Relations Board

According to Bloomberg Law:

"The Biden administration has asked for the resignation of the National Labor Relations Board’s general counsel, Trump-appointee Peter Robb, according to four people familiar with the decision.

"Robb would be the first NLRB general counsel to be forced out in more than a half-century, a move that suggests the partisan rancor that befell the normally staid agency during the Trump era could become the new normal."

Good riddance.




President Biden should signal to unions, workers, and organized labor that anti-labor policies and personnel are not welcome in the Executive Branch of the 46th President of the United States.

Peter Robb is a notorious union busting lawyer. Despite his anti-union orientation, in December 2017, Peter B. Robb was confirmed as General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

Strikewave’s C.M. Lewis provides a succinct reasoning why Peter Robb should be immediately removed by the Biden administration,

“That Robb ever became General Counsel is a travesty. The General Counsel is one of the most powerful positions at the agency, with the power to determine whether to investigate unfair labor practices and significant control over regional offices.

“His bona fides for the job: busting the air traffic controllers under Ronald Reagan in one of the most devastating assaults on unions since the New Deal. He was a partner at Vermont law firm Downs Rachlin Martin -- which boasts about their union avoidance tactics -- immediately prior to appointment to the position of NLRB General Counsel.

"Right now, the NLRB works under the legal guidance of a union buster that believes the agency shouldn’t exist.”

Please sign the petition asking President Biden to immediately Fire Peter Robb From the National Labor Relations Board and use the hashtag #FirePeterRobbNLRB and share with others of good will who want to see Biden support a pro-labor agenda.
