Press Release

WASHINGTON—Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) today called for William Emanuel to resign from his position on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) following the inspector general’s determination that he violated an ethics pledge:

"Now that the inspector general has determined Mr. Emanuel violated the President’s ethics pledge when he refused to recuse himself in the Hy-Brand case, he should resign immediately. 

“President Trump should swiftly name a nominee whose track-record aligns with NLRB’s commitment to protect the rights of workers who are fighting for better wages and safer workplaces, rather than the interests of corporations and their bottom lines.”
