American Federation of Teachers (AFT) -- National Affiliate
The American Federation of Teachers is a union of professionals that champions fairness; democracy; economic opportunity; and high-quality public education, healthcare and public services for our students, their families and our communities. We are committed to advancing these principles through community engagement, organizing, collective bargaining and political activism, and especially through the work our members do.
Florida Education Association (FEA) — State Affiliate
The Florida Education Association advocates for the right to a free, quality education for all. We work to empower and support local affiliates and advance professional growth, development and status of all who serve the students in Florida's public schools, colleges and universities.
National Education Association (NEA) - National Affiliate
The National Education Association (NEA), the nation's largest professional employee organization, is committed to advancing the cause of public education. NEA's 3 million members work at every level of education—from pre-school to university graduate programs. NEA has affiliate organizations in every state and in more than 14,000 communities across the United States.
AFL-CIO - The American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations
The AFL-CIO envisions a future in which work and all people who work are valued, respected and rewarded. While the AFL-CIO represents millions of working people who belong to unions and have the benefits of union membership, the labor federation embraces all people who share the common bond of work.
Work is what we do to better ourselves, to build dreams and to support our families. But work is more than that. Work cures, creates, builds, innovates and shapes the future. Work connects us all.
The AFL-CIO is an organization of people who work. We help lead a movement for social and economic justice in America and the world.
