St. Tammany Teachers Deserve a Choice
Having challenges with your teachers union? We speak to teachers every day who feel like their voices aren’t heard, or who don’t want to give money to organizations that are hostile to their beliefs. Louisiana is no exception to these issues.
Here’s what you should know:
- Union membership is not mandatory for public school teachers.
- Leaving the union does not affect your benefits! Your health and dental insurance, retirement funds, salary, contract, tenure and other benefits are all safe, regardless of whether you’re in the union or not.
- Non-union teacher associations, like A+PEL, can provide liability insurance and other benefits at a fraction of the cost. (Keep reading to see how AFFT can provide you with a scholarship!)
