Biden fires Peter Robb

Shortly after taking office on Wednesday, President Joe Biden asked for the resignation of Peter Robb, the controversial general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board.

After Robb refused to resign, Biden fired him, a White House spokesperson confirmed to HuffPost.

Unions despise Robb and wanted to see him ousted quickly, even though presidents usually do not fire the NLRB’s general counsel, who acts as a quasi-prosecutor. Robb had more than nine months left in his four-year term at the board.

Pushing Robb out now leaves the Republican with no more time to pursue anti-labor policies at the NLRB, which enforces collective bargaining laws and referees disputes between unions and employers. Robb was confirmed by the Senate in 2017.
