Staff Changes at the NLRB: "The heads of the National Labor Relations Board are planning a restructure of administrative staff at the agency's roughly 26 regional offices, including demoting employees in certain job classifications nationwide," Bloomberg Law's Hassan Kanu reports. "The plan would reclassify almost all NLRB administrative professionals as general 'program support assistants,' and place those employees into the same grade within the government's General Schedule pay system," he writes. NLRB General Counsel Peter Robb and the agency's career staff have been at odds since January 2018, when Robb proposed restructuring the agency to demote regional directors, whom the business lobby considers too pro-union.
