Less than a week after the U.S. Supreme Court slapped down the National Labor Relations Board for illegally ruling on about 500 cases, the Senate has confirmed for full-terms two of President Obama’s nominees to the NLRB.

The National Labor Relations Board reached its full five-member size for the first time since December 2007 after the U.S. Senate confirmed two of President Barack Obama’s nominees.
Brian Hayes, a Republican Senate aide, was confirmed by the Senate as it approved a package of almost 70 of Obama’s stalled nominees. The Senate also confirmed Mark Pearce, a Democrat Obama appointed to the board in March, for a full term.
However, the one person the Senate appears to have overlooked? The SEIU’s Craig “Refuse to Recuse” Becker…
Becker, opposed by Republicans and business groups for his ties to labor unions, wasn’t confirmed by the Senate today. That means he will serve on the board only until the end of 2011, less than the full five-year term.
