The Fairfax County Federation of Teachers (FCFT) was chartered in 1972. FCFT is an affiliate of the 1.6 million-member American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO. Our membership consists of teachers and other educational employees who have joined together to provide a strong voice for educators and students in Fairfax County, the statehouse, and the national level.
The Fairfax County Federation of Teachers represents all non-administrative, certified and classified Fairfax County public school employees. We represent the interests of teachers, counselors, librarians, teaching assistants, clerical employees, and other staff who work so hard to make our schools succeed. FCFT is the only union in FCPS that only represents educators, not administrators.
As FCFT members, we organize to make our schools better by putting pressure on FCPS and our elected officials, and lobbying local and state government for policies that directly affect educators & working families. FCFT supports pro-education, pro-worker candidates in local and state elections.
