AFSCME WV Activist Meeting
Presidents' Day February 21, 2005

On Monday, Presidents' Day, February 21, 2005 over 100 AFSCME West Virginia activists gathered at the State Capitol in Charleston to discuss AFSCME’S Legislative Agenda for 2005.

A Variety of Senators, Delegates and statewide elected officials spoke or greeted the AFSCME members. Many spoke honestly with the group by verifying that the solution to our legislative goals lies with increasing our membership numbers.

Guests from the West Virginia Education Association were in attendance and were used as the example of what could be accomplished if state employees would look at the issues realistically. Over 90% of education employees belong to a union and that strength has allowed them to make significant improvements year after year. Officials of WV State AFL-CIO, CWA and Laborers were also in attendance as guests.
