WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, Labor Caucus Co-Chairs Representatives Debbie Dingell (D-MI), Steven Horsford (D-NV), Donald Norcross (D-NJ), Mark Pocan (D-WI), Linda Sánchez (D-CA), and Tom Suozzi (D-NY)released the following statement supporting President Biden’s firing of National Labor Relation Board (NLRB) General Counsel Peter Robb.
“The Congressional Labor Caucus strongly supports President Biden’s removal of Peter Robb from his position as General Counsel of the NLRB. Peter Robb is an anti-union extremist appointed by Donald Trump to undermine organized labor and the rights of workers. Since his appointment, he has willfully failed to do his duty to protect union rights, interfered in union elections, and refused to hold employers accountable for their treatment of workers.
“This is a major step forward to reverse the previous administration’s destructive anti-union policies and a welcome sign for working families that desperately need a President committed to their survival. We look forward to working with the Biden-Harris administration to pass legislation that strengthens unions, raises wages, and protects workers.”
