Bush Taps
Ex-Personnel Boss
Senate Gives OK


The new general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board is a management attorney and former personnel manager. The U.S. Senate acted with rare speed, confirming President Bush’s nomination of Arthur F. Rosenfeld in just two days.

Rosenfeld spent the last four years as labor counsel for the Republicans on the Senate Health, Education and Labor Committee. Previously he had worked in the 1980s Bush Labor Department, as a management attorney, as a labor law attorney with the Chamber of Commerce and, from 1970 to 1976, as personnel manager of Bethlehem Fabricators Inc.

President Bush ejected former General Counsel Leonard R. Page on April 20. Page served a recess appointment beginning in November 1999 and was named acting general counsel by President Clinton last December. The Senate refused to act on Clinton’s nomination of Page to full four-year term.
