Today, at the AFL-CIO annual meeting, Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis hinted at an impending recess appointment of Craig Becker to the NLRB. It had been looking like that might not happen, but unless Solis was trying to tick off unions even more, it sounds like the Administration is going for it (perhaps related to the need to keep labor support for health care). According to the AP:
Solis told AFL-CIO officials at their annual meeting Wednesday there will soon be positive news on the long-stalled nomination of union lawyer Craig Becker.
Solis then told reporters the unions will be "very pleased" with how the issue is resolved.
