Trumka and Sen. Merkley Call for Senate to Approve NLRB Nominees

July 10, 2013

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka appeared together Wednesday at a Center for American Progress event to call on the U.S. Senate to move forward on confirming President Obama's nominations to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).  If those confirmations fail to be approved, the Board would fall below a quorum on August 1 and would no longer be able to do its job of protecting America's workers.
