Have A Voice In The Decision Making Process

AFT Virginia AMP aims to build local unions capable of sustainably representing all members. By supporting local efforts to create a deeper and broader understanding of employee rights and union organizing, we can give school employees the vision and the vehicle needed to defend their rights and those of their colleagues.

“To me being a part of FCFT means building community with my colleagues and colleagues across the district, advocating for better working conditons so we can better serve our students, and having a voice in real issues that affect us “

“Mr. Calhoun and the representatives are always available to listen to concerns. They are willing to stand with the teachers and for the teachers to ensure that we are treated fairly. I am truthfully grateful to be a part of this union.

“Many people think that collective bargaining is just about pay and compensation. The reality is that its more than that, it is about working conditions…our working conditions are our students learning conditions.”
