West Virginia Teachers Strike
March 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-6
Student Center East
More than 30,000 stunned West Virginia politicians and employers by launching a state-wide strike on February 22 in a fight against a miserable pay increase and a freeze on scheduled improvements to health insurance benefits. After union leaders negotiated a deal with the governor to end the strike, the state’s rank-and-file teachers voted to extend the strike until the teachers felt their demands were met.
