CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Several employees of the West Virginia Division of Labor’s Weights and Measures office have filed grievances over their transfer from St. Albans to the Capitol Complex in Charleston.

The Charleston Gazette (https://bit.ly/P99WpS ) reports that the workers allege that they were transferred after they filed complaints questioning the removal of janitorial services from the St. Albans. Office.

Gordon Simmons with UE Local 170 says he believes the transfers are retaliation for the complaints.

Division of Labor spokeswoman Catherine Zacchi says the agency won’t comment on any specific grievance. But she says some changes have been made in response to state budget cuts over the last two years.

Simmons says other grievances have been filed recently questioning the Division of Labor’s unpublicized reductions in the number of state safety inspectors.
