Here We Go Again: Obama’s NLRB Re-Nominations

Employer Group Says President Demonstrates Lack of Constitutional Seriousness

FEBRUARY 13, 2013 // WASHINGTON, D.C. // Today, the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace issued the following statement in response to the announcement that President Obama nominated Sharon Block and Richard Griffin to the National Labor Relations Board after their recess-appointment terms were invalidated by the U.S. Court of Appeals:

“The President can’t seriously expect the United States Senate to confirm two individuals who have refused to step aside from appointments which were declared unconstitutional by one of the highest courts in the nation,” said CDW chairman Geoffrey Burr. “This is, unfortunately, a strong indicator that the President is more concerned about driving a special-interest agenda than filling a fully functioning Board.”
