President Obama has renominated Craig Becker, an SEIU and AFL-CIO attorney, to the National Labor Relations Board. His name was included in a long list of nominations announced in a White House news release dated Jan. 20.
We discussed his nomination earlier today, “Card Check: Achieving Its Goals through the NLRB”
UPDATE (Friday, 10:30 a.m.): From Human Resource Executive Online:
When the Senate reconsiders the nomination, critics are likely to point to his writings as reason enough not to confirm him.
“In the minds of the business community, it’s further evidence that he’s more than just pro-labor — [it’s] that he has an extreme point of view that goes well beyond what some believe to be mainstream,” says Greg Robertson, a partner and co-head of the labor and employment team at Hunton & Williams in Richmond, Va.
“There’s a real concern that Becker would engage in rule-making,” he adds.
