RIVERA STILL ON THE JOB AT LABOR

Carmelo Rivera, Labor commissioner in the Schneider administration, is still on the job even though Gov. Charles W. Turnbull has named an acting commissioner to replace him.
Rivera did not resign and has gotten no official notice that he has been replaced, according to Saturday's Independent.
"All I know is what I read in the newspapers," Rivera said. "No official word has come to me, either verbally or in writing."
The Independent quoted Rudolph Krigger Sr., head of Turnbull's transition team, as saying of Rivera, "Well, there's another person in his position. You interpret that the way you want to."
Turnbull on Thursday named Eleuteria as acting Labor commissioner.
Rivera said if Turnbull doesn't want him to continue, he will look for work in the private sector, hopefully in the Virgin Islands.
