TONIGHT AT 10: Alabama one of the worst state when it comes to workers comp

Hello from the WAFF 48 Newsroom. Here’s a look at just a few of the stories we’re working on for our 10 o’clock newscast.

The Madison County School Board has voted down a plan for the new Monrovia High School. Superintendent Matt Massey had proposed sending 9th and 10th graders to Sparkman High School, with 11th and 12th graders going to Monrovia. Franklin White will have more on where they go from here after that 3-2 vote in opposition.

We’re also checking into a lawsuit that’s been filed against the Tennessee Valley Authority. Union leaders claim that TVA broke an agreement on increasing the pay of security officers at nuclear plants. Jake Berent sat down with the union president tonight.

And did you know that Alabama is one of the worst states in the country when it comes to worker’s compensation? Margo Gray explores what fair compensation is when it comes to something as horrific as losing a limb on the job. Joins us for her Special Assignment report.

We hope you’ll join Kim, Brad, Scott and me at 10.

See you then,
Mark Thornhill
