Fixing the List of Board of Directors at American Rights of Work

By March 11, 2009Labor Unions

American Rights at Work, a union group, has finally gotten around to removing the name of Hilda Solis, now Secretary of Labor, from its board of directors. (Earlier post.)

Former Senator John Edwards, slowly returning from humiliation and political exile into the public’s eye, remains on the list.

Interesting that Wade Henderson, President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, is also a board member. Henderson testified yesterday at the Senate HELP Committee hearing on the Employee Free Choice Act, but in his prepared testimony did not mention his being on the board of the labor group.

Why would you not be clear and direct about being a member of the board of directors of American Rights at Work? The members of the Senate committee and the public should have been informed about that affiliation, on the record.
