Lawmaker renews resignation call for Missouri ed chief

Wednesday, 15 January 2014 15:51 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House member has renewed her call for state Education Commissioner Chris Nicastro to resign.
 
Democrat Genise Montecillo, of St. Louis, addressed Nicastro during a hearing of the House Budget Committee on Wednesday.
 
Nicastro has faced criticism over various issues in recent months, including the award of a contract to a consulting firm to draft a turnaround plan for unaccredited school districts.
 
Montecillo urged Nicastro to step down last year. On Wednesday, she said the commissioner's resignation would be the responsible thing to do for Missouri's children.
 
Nicastro responded that she has a history with urban schools and that her record speaks for herself. She said others can do her job as well but that she's not sure the state could find anyone more willing and committed.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal officials have filed a formal complaint charging that Wal-Mart violated the rights of protesting and striking workers last year.
 
The National Labor Relations Board says Wal-Mart illegally fired, disciplined or threatened more than 100 employees in 14 states for participating in legally protected activities to complain about wages and working conditions.
 
The labor board's general counsel first laid out the charges last November, but held off on filing a complaint while trying to work out a settlement with Wal-Mart. The company has insisted its actions were legal and justified.
 
The complaint will go before an administrative law judge. If Wal-Mart is found liable, it could be required to award workers back pay, reinstatement and reverse any disciplinary action.
