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 Bushs 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 Clintons nomination of Page to full four-year
