Revise the Procedure for Adjusting Grievances

As President of the Virginia AFL-CIO, which represents over 150,000 union members and retirees, I want to echo the concerns of the Presidents of the Prince William and Fairfax Federation of Teachers.

Attracting and retaining skilled teachers has an enormous impact on students and the quality of their education. It’s critical that Virginia has a dismissal and grievance process that is fair and protects educators from arbitrary dismissals fueled by nepotism or personal conflicts. It is my hope that the regulatory issues spelled out by William B. Reichhardt, Esq. are taken into consideration and addressed.
