Fair Employment Rights

We believe everyone deserves to be treated fairly and with respect.
As a labor union, AEA advocates for workers' rights, including policies that respect educators as professionals, create healthy and safe working and learning environments, and treat educators fairly and equitably.
Vanessa Jimenez, Phoenix Union CEA President
I joined the union to be part of something bigger than myself. I think being a member is important because I’m not alone when I advocate. We can all get more done with a group of 10 or 50,000 when we support each other to reach a common goal and we share and gain knowledge from each other.
Quote by: Vanessa Jimenez, Phoenix Union Classified Employees Association President
