FCEA sent out a message to its members:
As you may already know, FCPS received a subpoena from the Labor Cabinet yesterday regarding the “sick outs” during the recent legislative session. We believe that this is just another example of those in power attempting to intimidate school employees that want to participate in the legislative process.
As educators, our first responsbility is to adovocate for our students and work with our legislators to ensure great public schools. We are so grateful for all of the school employees that advocated for our students during this past legislative session.
FCEA is in contact with FCPS as they work through this process. If you are contacted directly regarding this issue, please contact us before responding or talking with anyone. FCEA has your back!
