On May 23, 2013, the Whitehouse announced that the President had again sent the nomination of Lafe Solomon, Acting General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board, to the Senate, seeking confirmation to a four year term as NLRB General Counsel.  Mr. Solomon was first nominated for the job on January 5, 2011, but his nomination never came up for a vote.  It can be expected that Mr. Solomon’s nomination will receive significant opposition from Republican Senators over a number of issues including his decision to prosecute a complaint against Boeing over its decision to open a manufacturing plant in South Carolina rather than expand its plant in Puget Sound, Washington, where it had experienced labor problems and work stoppages in the past.  Mr. Solomon has been Acting General Counsel at the NLRB since June 21, 2010, and began his career at the NLRB in 1972 as a field examiner.
