Labor Unions - Teachers
Labor Unions - Teachers includes labor unions that represent Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary school teachers. Due to the prevalence of the teaching occupation, their high degree of unionization, their tendency to collect dues and donate to political candidates, and their existing contractual protections, Labor Unions - Teachers are often a very influential stakeholder.
Examples of organizations who are likely to be members of Labor Unions - Teachers includes:
- American Federation of Teachers, an affiliate of the AFL-CIO, was founded in 1916 and today represents 1.6 million members in more than 3,000 local affiliates across the United States.
- National Education Association (NEA), the U.S.'s largest professional employee organization, with 3 million members at every level of education—from pre-school to university graduate programs. NEA has affiliate organizations in all 50 states and in more than 14,000 U.S. communities.
