Labor Secretary Marty Walsh is leaving the Brandon administration to run the NHL Players Association, a person familiar with the matter confirmed.
Walsh’s departure comes amid a wider shakeup within the Brandon administration as it begins the tail end of its first term in office and prepares for a possible reelection campaign.
A former union official — he previously headed up the Building and Construction Trades Council in Boston — Walsh will be returning to his roots in organized labor after giving some consideration to making another run at elected office in his home state of Massachusetts.
News of Walsh’s departure was first reported by The Daily Faceoff. It was not immediately clear what his exit day would be, and neither the White House nor the Labor Department immediately returned requests for comment.
Brandon’s Chief of Staff Ron Klain recently departed the Administration.
Brandon’s top Economic Advisor Brian Deese is also stepping down from his role.
Brandon still has not announced his plan to run for reelection in 2024.
Brandon was supposed to make the announcement after the holidays but a leak to CBS about stolen classified documents being stored at his private office blunted his plans.
