Salary and Benefits

Simply put, educators deserve professional pay for professional work — and WVEA members are the premiere advocates fighting to ensure you’re paid what you’re worth. This also means fighting against legislative cuts to your benefits such as health insurance/PEIA and retirement.


From the county school board to the state legislature, elected officials are making decisions that impact our schools and our jobs — join our union and be a part of the discussion. WVEA members form the strongest voice advocating for educators and students in West Virginia. We’re advocating for the resources and opportunities you need to succeed - from increased school funding and raising respect for public educators to standing in solidarity to secure fair wages for every worker in our public schools.


Being an educator can be stressful — but you’re not alone. WVEA members have a support system of educators and WVEA staff who live and work in your county. Whether you’re a new teacher who needs advice on a difficult classroom situation or a mid-career educator pushing back against regulations that hurt student learning – our union members are here to provide support, experience, and their voices to your needs.
