WASHINGTON – The American Federation of Government Employees strongly supports President Trump’s nomination of Ernest DuBester to continue serving on the Federal Labor Relations Authority.
“Ernest DuBester has served on the FLRA with great distinction since 2009, proving over and again that he is dedicated to the best interests of working people across this nation,” AFGE National President J. David Cox Sr. said.
“Mr. DuBester is a true public servant, and I urge the Senate to swiftly confirm his nomination.”
DuBester currently holds the lone Democratic seat on the FLRA. President Trump previously nominated James Thomas Abbott and Colleen Kiko for the two Republican seats on the three-member panel.
DuBester was first nominated to the FLRA by President Obama in 2009 and was nominated to a second term in 2013. He was unanimously confirmed by the Senate both times. Previously, DuBester was nominated by President Clinton and served as chair of the National Mediation Board from 1993-2001.
