CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Tina Workman, of Kanawha County and a first grade teacher of 10 years at a Fayette County elementary school, sat with several other Kanawha teachers Tuesday morning, waiting to hear the latest development in their walkout — a 5 percent pay raise for all state employees as well as teachers, school service personnel and State Police.
Workman said although she was happy to hear the deal, she said she wouldn’t celebrate until the bill was signed.
“Last week we heard of a deal reached and people believed it too soon,” Workman said. “I was one that was iffy. We are very happy that this committee has seen the light for some miraculous reason, but we don’t believe it until it’s signed, sealed, delivered. Then, we will be where we want to be which is in the schools with our kids.”
