The Fairfax County Government Employees Union Chapter of SEIU Virginia 512 is a diverse and engaged union of more than 2,000 general county employees from across Fairfax County. We do many different types of jobs, ranging from social workers to maintenance workers, librarians to mental health staff, and more.
Our union was founded by county employees in 2006 to have a strong voice on the job, and to win the same respect that teachers and public safety employees have enjoyed. In that time, we have won real raises, ended unfair pay systems, saved our pensions, made our worksites safer, created jobs and more.
Fairfax members pride ourselves on being solution driven and on working with the county to deliver quality public services during difficult economic times.
The union members who serve on the Fairfax Executive Board are:
Tammie Wondong, President
Natalie Nguyen Woodruff, Vice President
Jen Parker, Secretary
Ricky Brown, Director
Brenda Butler, Director
Norm Hall, Director
Tamica Wells, Director
