Have these lawyers published papers, or tried significant cases? That's where you assess their skill sets.

One recent President added several lawyers known for their expertise in de certifying unions to the National Labor Relations Board. Guess what happened?

Publishing papers is for law school academics. Trying cases is almost always assigned to outside counsel. In-house corporate lawyers are a breed unto themselves.

Unionizing elections, card collections, etc faced more numerous hurdles.  Organizers at several Amazon facilities were thwarted in their efforts to reach employees, while management had open access.  Unions were decertified, and the discretionary power of the "Levitz" precedent was a big part of that. Basically, it says that a company can kick out a union, if there is significant evidence the union leadership has lost the confidence of its membership. Evidence of "lost confidence" is highly discretionary.  I understand John Robb, the former  General Counsel of NLRB, applied that in several 2017-2020 cases.

Law firms like Gibson, Dunn and foundations like National Right to Work Foundation are always available to assist in decertifying unions or providing executives to the high ranks of the Department of Labor.  But the growing tendency of states to implement or expand so-called  right to work laws will probably continue the weakening of private sector unions going forward.

Well, isn't that the #1 most important "qualification" in Corporate America and American politics anymore?  Ability to actually do the job (see Kamala Harris) is way down on the list.
