Burdick promoted to NLRB deputy assistant GC

Ruth E. Burdick has been appointed deputy assistant general counsel in the National Labor Relations Board’s Division of Enforcement Litigation’s Appellate and Supreme Court Litigation Branch. The branch litigates cases involving enforcement and review of the NLRB’s orders in the U.S. Courts of Appeals, and, working closely with the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of the Solicitor General, handles the board’s Supreme Court caseload.

In 2000, Ms. Burdick joined the then-Appellate Court Branch as a staff attorney. Before her promotion to branch supervisor in 2010, Burdick worked half a year as staff labor counsel for Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s Labor Policy Office for the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, and served in various positions, including vice president, of the union representing professionals working at NLRB headquarters, the NLRB Professional Association. Prior to joining the NLRB, she worked as a staff attorney at the AFL-CIO’s General Counsel’s Office, and as an associate at Bernabei and Katz.
