(WASHINGTON) – The following is a statement from Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa on President Joe Biden’s nomination of Gwynne Wilcox to serve on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

“The Teamsters are pleased that President Biden has chosen an experienced and capable nominee in Gwynne Wilcox for the existing NLRB opening, as she is someone who understands the importance of the agency in sticking up for hardworking Americans who are just trying their best to support their families.

“Her experience in the private sector representing union-side clients, as well as her past work as a field attorney for the NLRB’s New York City office, gives her a breath of knowledge when it comes to the challenges U.S. workers face in today’s climate that few others could match. The Teamsters call on the Senate to quickly confirm her.”
