Senate approves new National Labor Relations Board general counsel

Presidential pick Richard Griffin Jr. joins the NLRB ranks

The Senate approved Richard Griffin Jr. on Oct. 30 as the new general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board. The appointment follows a turbulent summer for the group, which lost its acting GC, Lafe Solomon, in August.

Griffin was President Barrack Obama’s pick for the post and will now be responsible for investigating and prosecuting those in violation of the National Labor Relations Act for the board. Griffin will hold the GC position for a four-year term.
