Washington, D.C.—The National Union of Healthcare Workers today called for the confirmation of Craig Becker, President Obama’s nominee for the National Labor Relations Board.

In a letter sent to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, NUHW Interim President Sal Rosselli wrote,

“Mr. Becker has impeccable scholarly credentials, a strong reputation as fair, ethical and objective advocate for workers’ rights, and a long history of experience in exactly this field of law. …[W]e are reassured by Mr. Becker’s assurances that he will act with the highest ethical standards and, with the appropriate, independent ethical advice, recuse himself from cases that may involve the SEIU in the future.”
