Morning Notes


Walter Reed Janitors Say They Haven't Been Paid — A group of about 220 janitors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center filed a complaint with the federal labor department claiming they did not get paid as scheduled Friday and were told to still come into work. The contractor that pays them, Gaithersburg-based Escab Enterprises, recently lost its contract on the base and stopped paying the workers' insurance premiums in June, they allege. [The Gazette] Montgomery Schools Boss Gives 'State of the Schools' Address — County Schools Superintendent Joshua Starr spoke about using creativity and technology in narrowing the achievement gap during a speech yesterday morning at the Music Center at Strathmore. [Washington Post] Lockheed CEO Says Company Moving On — After the resignation of CEO-to-be Christopher Kubasik because of the revelation of a relationship with a subordinate, Lockheed Martin CEO Bob Stevens said the company will remain on solid ground. Kubasik was supposed to take over for Stevens on Jan. 1 at the Bethesda-based defense company. [Washington Business Journal] Yesterday's Morning Metro Commute, In Pictures — Metro went on with weekend repair work and single tracking yesterday morning, as federal workers were off for the observance of Veterans Day. But quite a few other people still had work, as evidenced by the clogged platforms at many stations, including Bethesda. [Washington Post] Flickr photo by AmyMarieMoore
