WASHINGTON � Arizona labor management attorney Gerard Morales has been tapped by President Bush to fill one of three vacancies on the National Labor Relations Board. Morales, a partner in the Phoenix office of Snell & Wilmer, would fill, if confirmed by the Senate, a five-year term expiring Dec. 16, 2012. Prior to joining Snell & Wilmer, he served as an adjunct professor at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law. Earlier in his career, he was a field attorney at the National Labor Relations Board. Morales received his bachelor’s degree from Stetson University, his master’s degree from Tulane University, and his J.D. from Tulane University Law School. The president also said he intends to nominate Robert J. Battista of Michigan, to be a member and designate-chair upon confirmation, for the remainder of a five-year term expiring Dec. 16, 2009. Battista recently served as chair of the National Labor Relations Board but his term expired last December. He had been a partner at Butzel Long. Battista received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame and his J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School. Also getting a second shot at a seat on the NLRB is Dennis P. Walsh of Maryland who, Bush said, would fill the remainder of a five-year term expiring Aug. 27, 2008, and an additional five-year term expiring in 2013. Walsh served as a board member until January of this year. Before that, he served as special assistant to a board member and as chief counsel to a board member. Mr. Walsh received his bachelor’s degree from Hamilton College and his J.D. from Cornell Law School.
