The North Carolina Association of Educators is N.C.'s Public School Employees' union and an affiliate of the National Education Association, the country's largest labor union. With locals in all 100 counties representing active, retired, student, and community ally members, we are the largest public education advocacy association in the state with a mission to be the voice of educators in North Carolina that unites, organizes, and empowers members to be advocates for education professionals, public education and children.
Across North Carolina, we are building a movement to defend and transform public education. In the last three years, we've led the largest educator mobilization in state history and mobilized thousands of voters across the state to the polls as part of our successful campaign to halt the privatizer-controlled General Assembly’s eight-year legislative assault on our educators, students, and communities. In that same time, several of our locals have also fought for and won historic pay increases for custodians and other staff, secured #shotsforsafereturn for their staff and harnessed the momentum from those wins to propel themselves into ranking among the fastest-growing National Education Association affiliates in the country.
We're on the cusp of restoring North Carolina as a national leader on education policy and are making moves from the Sandhills to the mountains to win the schools our students deserve.
