BURLINGTON, Kan. (AP) -- Officials of Kansas' Wolf Creek nuclear plant will meet with federal regulators in Texas next week to discuss progress in making sure the plant's workers aren't afraid to report safety concerns.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued a letter in August after determining a "chilled work environment" exists within the quality assurance group at the Wolf Creek Generating Station near Burlington, Kan.

That letter came after the Occupational Safety and Health Administration found that a Wolf Creek contractor had fired an employee for raising concerns about how work was being performed at the plant.

The NRC issued the letter because the firing might affect the willingness of other workers to speak up.

The meeting is scheduled the afternoon of Jan. 22 at the NRC's regional office in Arlington, Texas.
