1981: NFT Charter
In 1981, a charter was granted to the Norfolk Federation of Teachers (NFT) from our parent group, The American Federation of Teachers (AFT).
Since receiving our Charter, the Federation has grown into a large organization representing more teachers and other school employees than any other group in Norfolk Public Schools. One reason for the NFT’s continual growth is the fact that our membership has been able to re-elect our leadership. This brings continuity and makes our leadership more effective, knowledgeable and credible.
