Hoglander to chair National Mediation Board for fourth time

The National Mediation Board (NMB) has named Harry Hoglander chairman for a one-year term that expires June 30, 2013. Linda Puchala, who served as chair the past year, will remain a board member.

Hoglander joined the NMB in August 2002 and previously served as chairman in 2004-05, 2007-08 and 2010-11. He was confirmed by the Senate for a third NMB term in July 2009.

Prior to joining the board, Hoglander was a legislative specialist in the office of U.S. Rep. John Tierney (D-Mass.). Hoglander has extensive aviation industry and labor relations experience.

An independent federal agency, the NMB governs labor-management relations in the rail and airline industries.
