The support personnel of the Waterford School District are represented by the Waterford Federation of Support Personnel, WFSP Local 1818. As your union we engage in various activities including bargaining contracts that determine your wages, hours and working conditions, and legislative and political activities that support public education and school employees. The WFSP encourages all Waterford School District support staff to become union members—and active ones at that! To find out how you can become more involved in the WFSP and/or if you have questions about the WFSP dues structure, please contact the WFSP executive board at (248) 929-1743 or WFSP1818@gmail.com.
