Former NLRB Member Craig Becker Jumps to AFL-CIO

The AFL-CIO announced yesterday that former NLRB member Craig Becker has joined the union as its co-general counsel. Becker, who has also served as counsel to the SEIU, was nominated to the Board by President Obama in 2010. The Senate blocked his confirmation, with several Republican Senators criticizing his positions. The New York Times story on Becker noted that, during his confirmation process, Senator John McCain called him “probably the most controversial nominee that I have seen in a long time.” The Times also recited several of the measures backed by Becker in his tenure at the Board which have come under fire in the courts.
