Just as Easter is about resurrection, we will resurrect a labor board that fights for workers. That will lead to renewal of workers rights.
That’s Larry Cohen, president of the Communications Workers of America, quoted in a Wall Street Journal post about a recess appointment of Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board, “Labor Officials Confident Union Lawyer Will Take NLRB Seat.”
The hyperbole captures Big Labor’s delight over signals from Vice President Biden and Labor Secretary Solis that President Obama will make a recess appointment of Becker during the Passover/Easter recess of Congress in April.
Take note of Wednesday, March 3, 2010. That’s the day the Obama Administration embraced both reconciliation and recess appointments to accomplish its goals, a concession to its political limits.
