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.
