KENNEDY ON BATTISTA NOMINATION WITHDRAWAL
Today, Robert Battista asked the White House to withdraw his nomination to be Chairman of the National Labor Relations Board. Senator Kennedy said,
"Mr. Battista's tenure on the Board made clear that he was not going to stand up for the nation's workers. I urge the President to send us a new nominee who will reverse the Board's anti-worker, anti-union, anti-labor bias. In these difficult economic times, it is more important than ever for employees to have a Board that protects their rights."
