Your Union membership starts at the local affiliate level, but is part of something much bigger. As a Union member, you are part of the National Education Association (NEA), represented on the State level by the Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC), and then regionally by WEAC Region 7.
The NEA, the WEAC, and Region 7 are all working together with your local to make public education the best it can be for our students. It is the only professional organization fighting for our kids – working for education friendly legislation on the National & State levels, working with State Department’s of Instruction ensuring that our public schools are being held accountable for following State regulations, and giving local Unions the resources they need to help students achieve their highest potential, from rurals to urbans to suburban school districts.
In order to achieve all of our goals, we rely on membership levels to bring in the financial resources needed. Your membership in the Union gives us the resource to remain a strong advocate for you as an education professional, and most importantly, for your students.
