A senior fellow at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton Business School is one of three nominations made Tuesday by President Obama for appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.

Philip A. Miscimarra, a Penn law school graduate, serves as managing director of the Wharton Center for Human Resources Research Advisory Group and is the employment law adviser to Wharton's Financial Services Group.

Miscimarra is a partner in Morgan Lewis's labor and employment practice in Chicago, a cochair of the firm's Workforce Change practice and is one of two Republican nominees to the five-member board. His clients include the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers.

The other nominees are Republican Harry I. Johnson 3d, a management-side lawyer from California, and current NLRB chairman Mark Gaston Pearce, a Democrat and union-side lawyer whose term expires on August 27. Two recess appointments, Democrats Sharon Block and Richard F. Griffin Jr., await Senate confirmation.
