WASHINGTON, DC - After the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia found President Obama's recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) unconstitutional, Mary Kay Henry, President of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), issued the following statement:

"We strongly disagree with the Court's opinion finding last year's appointments to the NLRB unconstitutional. As the appeals process moves forward, we are confident that these important appointments will be upheld and the critical work of the NLRB will be able to continue undeterred."
