CDW Submits Letter to Senate Opposing the Nomination of Jennifer Abruzzo as NLRB General Counsel
Washington, D.C. – On July 13, CDW submitted a letter to the Senate opposing the nomination of Jennifer Abruzzo to serve as General Counsel to the National Labor Relations Board. In our letter we explain that Abruzzo disqualified herself from this role when she participated and subsequently was not forthcoming about her involvement in the unprecedented firing of her would-be predecessor, former NLRB General Counsel Peter Robb.
Ms. Abruzzo admitted to being a part of the deliberations and decision making for this unprecedented move only after concerns were raised by Senators during her confirmation hearing. She chose not to be forthcoming in order to protect her opportunity to be confirmed to the position, proving she knew Robb’s termination was inappropriate and her involvement could disqualify her from the position she was seeking.
CDW urged the Senate to reject her nomination.
