West Virginia Teachers to Continue Strike after Senate Passes Lower Pay Raise

(From UPI)

The West Virginia teacher strike will continue on Monday, after the Senate on Saturday decreased a proposed teacher raise from 5 percent to 4 percent.

West Virginia Education Association President Dale Lee said the vote broke the agreement promised by the governor and passed by the House.

“At this point, all three organizations announce we are out indefinitely,” Lee said. “We do not accept the 4 percent. The Senate still has the opportunity to do the right thing on the floor. But until this bill passes this out at 5 percent, we are out indefinitely.”
