The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations asked The Home Depot Inc. Thursday to oust director Ken Langone over a mistake in doling out stock options for executives, and another shareholder group demanded the company release documents to explain why directors were a no-show at the retailer’s annual meeting.

The AFL-CIO said in a letter to Home Depot’s board that Langone’s resignation should be sought because he served on the board’s stock option committee during the period of improperly granted options.
