President Donald Trump re-submitted a host of nominations for a number of labor and other positions to the Senate this week. Many of the nominees were caught in a standoff between the White House and democratic senators over pending nominations: essentially, where the republican Senate majority did not confirm a number of democratic nominees, then the democratic Senate minority would block republican nominees! The stalemate lasted through the end of the past Congress, meaning those nominations expired and had to be resubmitted. Among the nominees formally re-submitted by the President are Scott Mugno, nominee for DOL assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health (OSHA Chief); Cheryl Marie Stanton, nominee for wage and hour administrator; Janet Dhillon member-nominee of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC currently lacks a quorum); William Beach as the nominee for commissioner of labor statistics (BLS chief); and John Pallasch, re-submitted as the nominee for DOL assistant secretary for the Employment & Training Administration.
