The Communications Workers of America (CWA) is applauding Joe Biden’s announcement that he has selected Jennifer Abruzzo to be NLRB General Counsel. Abruzzo, currently the Special Counsel for Strategic Initiatives at CWA, has many years of experience working for the NLRB in various roles, including Acting General Counsel and Deputy General Counsel.
“There is no one who has a more thorough grasp of the National Labor Relations Board and the purpose of the National Labor Relations Act than Jennifer Abruzzo,” said CWA President Chris Shelton. “She is a brilliant attorney who understands how the actions of the NLRB impact the daily lives of people at their workplaces. President Biden’s selection of Jennifer as the NLRB General Counsel shows that under his watch, issues affecting working people will be handled by people like Jennifer who have dedicated their lives to helping workers -- and not union busters like we saw during the Trump administration. We hope Jennifer’s confirmation process is speedy -- working people need her at the helm of the NLRB now more than ever.”
