CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A decision on a teachers strike may be made Sunday as representatives of the West Virginia Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers meet in Flatwoods.

WVEA president Dale Lee said teachers around the state have voted on whether they would agree to a strike, and those votes will be counted.

Lee said he has seen “positive” things, including the freeze on insurance premiums for 2018.
