how FCFT's Democracy Works
Everyone has a voice
FCFT's members form the highest governing body of the union. The Union holds elections for its major officers and its executive board. In addition, the entire membership can hold votes on important decisions. For example, when we win collective bargaining in this county, the membership will vote on whether to accept or reject a tentative agreement, which becomes our contract if ratified.
In Every School and Workplace
When people think of FCFT, they sometimes think of the officers and staff who work full time serving the membership. The union is strongest, however, when it unifies members in your schools and workplaces to enforce healthy working conditions directly with immediate supervisors and administrators. Union staff are trained to support this work, but it takes solidarity among coworkers to address issues when they crop up and make clear to administrators that our rights cannot be violated if they want the school to run smoothly.
