Acosta is a former US attorney in Miami who served on the National Labor Relations Board in the Bush administration and headed the civil rights section in the Department of Justice.

"This is a big win for American workers, who mobilized across the country to defeat Andy Puzder's confirmation", Bieber said in a statement.

Acosta is Trump's first Latino cabinet nominee.

Acosta's nomination came after Puzder, CEO of Carl's Jr. and Hardee's parent CKE Restaurants Holdings Inc., withdrew Wednesday, on the eve of his confirmation, hearing after a number of Republican senators said they would not support him.

CNN and NBC were reporting the that Acosta will be Trump's pick.

Puzder has not provided details about why he chose to withdraw his nomination for labour secretary.
