Teachers strike

Hundreds of teachers and school workers again filled the state Capitol on Friday, Feb. 23, the second day of a statewide teachers strike.

West Virginia teachers will continue their strike for a third day on Monday, state teachers union leaders announced late Friday.

Teachers went on strike Thursday in dissatisfaction over pay raise and benefit proposals from state legislative leaders and Gov. Jim Justice, and remained out on Friday.

Teachers in all of West Virginia's 55 counties will stay out on Monday, union leaders said in a news conference Friday afternoon at the state Capitol.
