Obama Appoints Nominees Without Senate Approval

President Barack Obama appointed two Democrat nominees - Craig Becker and Mark Pearce---to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The Board now has 4 of its five members seated; 3 Democrats and 1 Republican.

Becker’s nomination received bi-partisan opposition during a floor vote in February, when the Senate was unable to move forward with his confirmation. The president has the authority to appoint nominees, without approval, during a congressional recess. The lone Republican nominee, Brian Hayes, did not receive a recess appointment from the president.

Bring Businesses Back to New Jersey: A Vital Part of the Blue Print for Change

Obama Appoints Anti Business Labor Lawyer Craig Becker to NLRB

One of President Obama's Saturday recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board quickly triggered intense opposition from Business Groups and Republicans, who called the appointee a radical who represents a White House gift to labor unions.

Trade & Business Organizations objections to Obama’s appointment of Craig Becker to serve on the NLRB stems from his history of anti-employer, pro-union views which are not in line with the supposedly non-partisan make up of the influential NLRB.

Mr. Becker has written that he believes that employers should be completely barred from not only participating in the election process, but also from questioning who is in the bargaining unit (i.e. supervisors) and all worksite discussions of an election with employees. Mr. Becker has even gone so far as saying that union representation should be mandatory and that the only choice afforded to workers should be given is which union to join.
