Recently, President Obama caused a stir when he used his recess-appointment authority to name two union lawyers, Craig Becker and Mark Pearce, to the National Labor Relations Board.

All this has focused unusual attention on the NLRB.

This week on the legal-affairs podcast Lawyer2Lawyer, we discuss the state of affairs at the NLRB with two guests: Nancy Schiffer, associate general counsel of the AFL-CIO, and Charles I. Cohen, a former NLRB board member who is now senior counsel in the labor and employment practice at Morgan Lewis & Bockius.
