Unpredictable Sen. John McCain (R.-Ariz.) scored a hit with conservatives last week…

NLRB ON HOLD: Unpredictable Sen. John McCain (R.-Ariz.) scored a hit with conservatives last week by thwarting — at least for the time being — the move by the White House and Senate Democrats to ram through the confirmation of the President’s nomination of Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board. In putting a hold on the nomination of the Service Employees International Union associate counsel, McCain wrote Tom Harkin (D.-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, calling for a hearing on Becker’s NLRB nomination. The Arizonan cited his concerns “regarding Mr. Becker’s written views” and singled out the nominee’s articles indicating his support for the controversial “card-check” provision of the Employee Free Choice Act. There are fears an Obama-named NLRB might institute card-check without congressional approval. The Wall Street Journal also reported that Becker was responsible for drafting several pro-union executive orders when he served on Obama’s transition team while still on the SEIU payroll.
