Following Senate confirmation of Jennifer Abruzzo as NLRB General Counsel, AFSCME President Lee Saunders issued the following statement:

“Jennifer Abruzzo’s long and exemplary career at the National Labor Relations Board makes her the perfect choice to lead efforts to restore this vital agency, which in recent years has been used to attack working people and weaken their rights. Her knowledge and experience will allow her to hit the ground running on day one – holding employers accountable, protecting the right to organize in a union and bargain collectively, and guaranteeing that workers are treated with dignity and respect.”
