Obama to nominate Tom Perez as next U.S. Secretary of Labor

WASHINGTON, March 17 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Monday will nominate Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez as his next labor secretary, a White House official said.

Before joining the Justice Department in 2009, Perez was Maryland’s labor secretary. If confirmed by the Senate, he will replace Hilda Solis, who resigned in January. (Reporting by Roberta Rampton; Editing by Stacey Joyce)
