WASHINGTON, DC – In the spirit of moving America forward and working together, today President Joe Biden fired National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) general counsel Peter Robb. Robb was appointed by Trump and had almost a year left to serve in his U.S. Senate confirmed term of office when Biden asked for him to resign. Robb refused to resign, so Joe fired him.
“I respectfully decline to resign from my Senate-confirmed four-year term appointment as General Counsel of the NLRB less than 10 months before the expiration of my term,” Robb wrote.
Robb’s term would have ended in November if left alone. Now, Biden will seek to appoint a Democrat to replace Robb, which requires another Senate confirmation hearing. The Biden administration has already removed Robb’s biography from the NLRB website.
