Conference energizes members to Reclaim the PromiseMore
Retirees and activists from AFT-WV joined with other retired public employees for a rally at the Capitol on April 15, 2014. The Coalition of Retired Public Employees (CORPE) staged a rally to garner support for a tax exemption for a portion of a retired public employee's pension. A similar measure for retired police and firemen is already in place in the state.
