Secretary of Labor Hints that the President Will Name Craig Becker as a Recess Appointee to NLRB

Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis told AFL-CIO officials at their annual meeting that they would be “very pleased” with how the nomination of Craig Becker to the NLRB would be resolved. On February 9th, the Senate failed to invoke cloture on Becker’s nomination by a 52-33 vote.

Many (ShopFloor, Jeffrey Hirsch, and Mark Toth) speculate that Secretary Solis was hinting that Becker would be appointed during the upcoming Congressional recess.
