WASHINGTON (AP) _ Malcolm Lovell, former undersecretary of Labor, will direct a task force examining plant closings and evaluating programs and policies to deal with the problem, it was announced Friday.
Lovell’s appointment to chair the 21-member Task Force on Economic Adjustment and Worker Dislocation was announced by Labor Secretary William Brock.
Lovell is director of George Washington University’s Industrial Relations Institute and he was former undersecretary of labor from 1981-1983 when Raymond J. Donovan was labor secretary. Lovell also served as an assistant labor secretary for manpower under President Nixon.
