In one of his first acts in office, President Biden fired National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) General Counsel Peter Robb. Robb, a notorious anti-worker attorney, refused to resign his position voluntarily. In the 1980s, he served under President Reagan and was deeply involved in the effort to bust the air traffic controllers union. As general counsel, he had an enormous amount of power to pursue his anti-worker agenda. AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka (UMWA) reacted to the news yesterday: “Robb’s removal is the first step toward giving workers a fair shot again, and we look forward to building on this victory by securing a worker-friendly NLRB and passing the PRO Act so all working people have the freedom to form a union.”
