Join Your Union

As an educator joining your union is a critical part of your drive for student success and professional excellence. Becoming a member lets you take ownership of your profession and have a voice in the decisions that affect your students and your career.

Joining your local union connects you to a national movement of educators 4-million members strong. Use the form below to contact your local union and join today!

There are many good reasons to join your union and the 145,000 members of the Florida Education Association, including:

  • A voice on the job: Acting alone we can only do so much. But being active and engaged in your union gives you a powerful, collective voice about the future of teaching and learning.
  • Respect: Educators in Florida join their union because they want respect and the right to continually improve their professional practice.
  • Strength in numbers: Union members negotiate local contracts covering nearly every aspect of their work lives and take collective action for their students, schools and communities.
  • Your local union membership includes membership in the Florida Education Association as well as our two national affiliates, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the National Education Association (NEA).
