The National Mediation Board (NMB) announced late last week that Maria-Kate Dowling began serving as acting general counsel on Oct. 1.
In performing the general counsel's duties, Dowling succeeds Mary Johnson, who most recently served as general counsel and retired after decades of service at the NMB, agency officials said in a press release.
Prior to joining the NMB as associate general counsel, Dowling served as assistant chief counsel to the chairman of the National Labor Relations Board. She received her J.D. from the George Washington University National Law Center.
The NMB will engage the federal government in recruiting a permanent replacement for the general counsel position.
An independent U.S. federal government agency that was established in 1934, the NMB facilitates labor-management relations in the railroad and airline industries.
