Rally Slated For Wednesday Against Right-To-Work At WV Capitol

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Labor union members plan to rally against Right-to-work legislation at the State Capitol on Wednesday.

The Teamsters Local Union 175 announced members from across the state plan to visit the State Capitol, according to a news release.

Members said they will voice their opposition to the passage of right-to-work law which they say weakens worker protection and drives down wages. Organizers said hundreds are expected to attend.

Members will gather at 6 p.m. at the Capitol.

Republican lawmakers are pushing to make West Virginia a right-to-work state and repeal its prevailing wage for public construction projects this legislative session.
