Foxx, Walberg Statement on Confirmation of John Ring to National Labor Relations Board

Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), chairwoman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, and Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI), chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions, issued the following joint statement after the Senate's confirmation of John Ring to join the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

“John Ring has proven himself to be a strong, experienced, and fair leader when it comes to representing workers and job creators. Mr. Ring will be a principled and objective voice on the NLRB, and not a rubber stamp to special interests that were in favor during the Obama Administration. We commend the Senate for voting to confirm him to the NLRB so that workers can count on a balanced and commonsense approach from the Board moving forward.”
