President Joe Biden designated Ernest DuBester to serve as Chairman of the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA).
“It is a great privilege and honor to be chosen by President Biden to serve as chairman of the FLRA,” Chairman DuBester said in a press release.
DuBester was initially nominated and renominated to the position by President Barrack Obama and was later renominated by President Donald Trump. He was also nominated to serve as chairman and member of the National Mediation Board (NMB) by President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 2001.
With over 45 years of experience in labor-management relations, DuBester started his career as counsel to former chairman and member John Fanning at the National Labor Relations Board. He has also served as legislative counsel to the AFL-CIO and taught collective bargaining and arbitration at the Catholic University of America School of Law.
