Last week, the U.S. Senate confirmed attorney Jennifer Abruzzo as the new General Counsel for the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Abruzzo, who was nominated for the post by President Biden back in mid-February, needed Vice President Kamala Harris to break a 50-50 tie along party lines in the Senate. Although she most recently served as the general counsel for the Communications Workers of America (CWA), Abruzzo worked at the NLRB for almost two decades through the end of the Obama presidency. Now confirmed, she takes over the position from which Trump-appointed General Counsel Peter Robb was fired with 10 months remaining on his Senate-confirmed term. You will recall that Robb and his deputy general counsel Alice Stock were fired immediately after Biden was inaugurated as President after refusing to submit his resignation. His term was to expire in November. There are legal challenges pending.
