All but one WV democratic primary candidate for governor supports collective bargaining
All but one candidate supports collective bargaining for public employees

WHEELING - Five of the six Democrats running for the party's nomination for governor of West Virginia Thursday said public employees should have collective bargaining privileges, but without the right to strike.

South Charleston resident Arne Moltis was the only candidate who said he does not support collective bargaining for public employees, which is not permitted under West Virginia law.

All six candidates for the party's nomination spoke at a forum in Wheeling on Thursday. Republicans spoke on Tuesday.

I haven't yet decided who I'm going to vote for, but I'm definitely not going to vote for Arne Moltis.

1. Politely said, Arne Moltis is a loon.
According to the Huntington Herald-Dispatch:

QUESTION 1. What measures would you propose to protect West Virginias water supply from the effects of coal mining and natural gas drilling?

ANSWER The healthy water supply for west virginia as well as healthy food is a top priority, that is why i do not drink tap water because of the impurities and the excessive chlorine in it which is the main cause of breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men.

2. I'm from Ohio, but live very near West Virginia, and I have a question
Are teachers in West Virginia allowed to collectively bargain? I had know idea public employees in West Virginia didn't have collect bargaining rights, or am I misreading something?

3. No, WV teachers cannot collectively bargain.
They are represented by the WVEA and the WV American Federation of Teachers but collective bargaining for wages and benefits is prohibited.
