Collective Bargaining

The Virginia General Assembly approved legislation (effective May 2021) allowing counties, cities and towns in Virginia to bargain collectively with employees upon adopting and authorizing an ordinance or resolution. As a result and after extensive and comprehensive consideration, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted on October 19, 2021, to adopt a Collective Bargaining Ordinance. The provisions established by the ordinance will be implemented by the Labor Relations Administrator (LRA), who will serve as a neutral. The search for a Labor Relations Administrator is underway. For questions or feedback, email collectivebargaining@fairfaxcounty.gov.

Personnel and Reorganization Committee meetings

Background

In anticipation of the new law going into effect, the Board of Supervisors created a collective bargaining workgroup, led by Personnel and Reorganization Committee Chair Penelope Gross and Supervisor James Walkinshaw, including employee group representatives from the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) and General County Government, elected officials from FCPS, County Executive Bryan Hill, FCPS Superintendent Scott Brabrand and other senior staff members.  The workgroup met in February and April of 2021, and feedback from the group was instrumental in planning related Personnel Committee meetings.
