House Republicans said Tuesday they will press for more answers after an inspector general’s report charged that the top lawyer for the National Labor Relations Board had an apparent financial conflict of interest in a case involving Wal-Mart.
The White House says President Obama's visit to a unionized Boeing Co. plant near Seattle on Friday will focus on the economy, but the event also is being viewed as a victory lap for Mr. Obama with labor unions that successfully fought the aerospace company's plans to move jobs to a nonunion plant.
A contentious labor dispute between the Obama administration and Boeing Co. that spawned a national political fight likely will be settled after the aerospace giant and the Machinists union announced Wednesday a tentative deal on a new four-year collective-bargaining agreement.
