NEA’s Annual Meeting & Representative Assembly

The world's largest democratic, deliberative body, by educators, for educators.

Attention NEA RA Delegates: Please be informed that NEASO, one of the NEA staff bargaining units, initiated a strike for the duration of the NEA Representative Assembly. Once again, NEA has requested that NEASO join NEA and request assistance from a mediator from the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. NEASO has declined. NEA will respect our staff's strike line. Additional information will be sent via e-mail.

“We won’t go back. We will strengthen public education, so it is a just system designed around the joy of teaching; a system with a deep sense of community and shared responsibility; a system where high expectations are matched with plentiful resources and supports.”
