Collective lobbying.

Along with a host of other unions, the West Virginia Education Association is organizing the biggest push for a collective bargaining law in the state's history.

Calling the public's attention to the need for such a law, WVEA and the other members of the coalition are blanketing the state with editorials and letters and hosting several events.

State leaders are urging local Associations to head the collective bargaining effort by establishing bargaining in their own counties.

"It's time West Virginia workers had a voice in setting their wages, hours, and working conditions," says WVEA President Kayetta Meadows. "And bargaining makes a difference to reform efforts. It means better schools for our students."
