We believe that good jobs, quality education, and stronger communities all go hand-in-hand. That’s why we lead campaigns at the bargaining table, at our worksites, and at the ballot box.
We fight to win contracts that not only improve wages and benefits for our families, but that also improve staffing and programs for the students and families we serve. As education workers and parents, our commitment to ensuring every student has access to a quality education is deeply personal.
As union members, we also stick together at the ballot box to ensure that our issues (fair pay, respect on the job, health care, etc.) are prioritized. And we hold our elected officials accountable to ensure that they expand funding for public education, pass laws that improve the livelihoods of all working people, and respect and value our contributions to student learning.
