An important message for AFT-WV members

Dear member,

We had a great meeting in Flatwoods yesterday, with all 55 counties from AFT-WV, WVEA, and WVSSPA reporting the authorization vote totals. By an overwhelming majority, education employees voted to approve authorization for our respective leaders to call for an “action” if & when warranted. The three organizations held a joint press conference to announce the results of the authorization vote.

Thanks to all teachers, service personnel, parents, students and supporters who came to the Capitol today.

There were no committee meetings today. The majority of bills moved to third reading with the right to amend. One bill, HB 168, a thinly-veiled attempt at private school vouchers with a $5 million fiscal note, moved to second reading.
