Who's Who in Labor


On September 7, 2006, President George W. Bush announced his intention designate Leslie Silverman, of Virginia, to be Vice-Chair of the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Silverman now serves as Commissioner for a five-year term expiring July 1, 2008. She was appointed by the President in March of 2002 and reappointed to her current term.

On September 14, 2006, President George W. Bush announced his intention to nominate David Palmer, of Maryland, to be a Commissioner of the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) for the remainder of a five-year term expiring July 1, 2011. Palmer had been serving as Chief of the Employment Litigation section of the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice (DOJ). He previously served as Acting Special Litigation Counsel in the DOJ's Office of Special Counsel for Immigration Related Unfair Employment Practices.

General Counsel Ronald Meisburg of the National Labor Relations Board announced the appointment of Nicholas Ohanesian as Resident Officer in the Agency's Resident Office Jacksonville, Florida (Region 12). In his new position, Mr. Ohanesian will assist Regional Director Rochelle Kentov in enforcing the National Labor Relations Act in all of Florida, except for 12 counties in the state's panhandle region, and in 21 counties in southern Georgia.

U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao welcomed the October 19, 2006, announcement that President George W. Bush has appointed Richard E. Stickler of West Virginia to serve as the assistant secretary of labor for mine safety and health. This critical worker safety and health position had been vacant since November 2004, but Stickler's nomination never received a confirmation vote in the U.S. Senate. Prior to his nomination, Stickler was director of the Pennsylvania Bureau of Deep Mine Safety from 1997 to 2003.
