|Walk-In Rallies are planed in Grantsville and Arnoldsburg Wednesday morning involving Calhoun Middle-High, Pleasant Hill, Arnoldsburg, and Calhoun-Gilmer Career Center school teachers, employees, parents, community members, and additional state employees.|
State officials are saying that a strike is on the horizon.
Organizers say the events are an opportunity to inform the public and ask for support with issues developing with [PEIA] the WV Public Employees Insurance Agency and small pay raises.
WV teachers are among the lowest paid in the USA.
Rallies have been held in multiple counties across the state in recent days.
"This is not just a teacher issue," said a local rally organizer, "It affects every state and public employee. Calhoun's Walk-Ins provide unity for our county, and is an opportunity for legislators in Charleston to see that Calhoun stands united until PEIA is completely fixed, and all state workers are provided a fair salary increase."
