White House Consults with AFL-CIO on Labor Picks

That seems a bit one-sided


New nominees to replace a pair of recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board could come as soon as Tuesday afternoon, two sources said.

As part of the deal to avoid the so-called nuclear option, Republicans have agreed not to block replacement nominees for Richard Griffin and Sharon Block.

The two replacement candidates have been picked today in consultation with AFL-CIO head Richard Trumka and are expected to be announced by the White House this week.
