UE Local 170 members and supporters gathered at the State Capitol in Charleston for our seventh annual Presidents Day Rally. Members rallied in support of UE Local 170's 2013 legislative agenda, which includes a pay raise for state workers, reform of the WV public employees' grievance statute, seniority rights for state workers, and more funding for WV OSHA.

Members also spoke out in favor of reasonable caseload standards for DHHR employees and better working conditions for employees who work at the state hospitals and nursing homes. The rally received media coverage across the state, including a news story in The Charleston Gazette, which you can read here. You can also view pics of the rallyhere.
