UE Local 170 members, including UE Local 170 President Donna Morgan, Vice-President Chris Wolford and Recording Secretary Cathy Miller, met with nearly 20 different West Virginia Legislators, including House Majority Whip Mike Caputo (D-Marion), during the November 15, 2011 Local 170 Lobby Day. The Local 170 members were accompanied by UE Director of Organization Bob Kingsley and UE Eastern Region President Deb Gornall. In their meetings, the UE delegation asked for the legislators' support for the 2012 UE Local 170 legislative agenda, which includes a cost-of-living pay raise for state workers and retirees, seniority protections for state workers, full-funding for WV OSHA, meaningful caseload standards for DHHR program areas and stopping the privatization of state workers' jobs.
