    Bush Nominees for Labor Safety Slots Have Questionable Records - by Brendan Coyne, The NewStandard, NY
    The law firm was also involved in helping the battery company EnerSys stave off union representation. EnerSys was eventually cited for a number of labor law violations and subsequently sued Jackson Lewis for allegedly giving it advice to take illegal actions against workers. Jackson Lewis denied the claims.

    Stickler’s record is less well-known. According to the Charleston Gazette, the United Mine Workers opposed his nomination to head Pennsylvania’s Bureau of Deep Mine Safety in 1997 over what they cited as a poor track record in more than 30 years as a company manager with Bethenergy Mines. The Mine Workers have yet to take an official position on the pending appointment.
