You have a voice. Make it heard with MEA!
The Marion Education Association (MEA) is a group of over 1,500 local teachers that is recognized as the legal bargaining agent for all instructional personnel in Marion County. We are education professionals who take great pride in speaking for quality education practices and for serving and protecting our members' best interests.
Be part of your Union. Join with professional colleagues in protecting due process and promoting a quality public education for all children. And, be entitled to all the many benefits that comes with your membership.
Union workers have the right to negotiate with their employer over wages, hours, benefits and working conditions. Without a union, management makes all the decisions alone.
Union workers negotiate and organize for improvements as a unified group instead of as individuals. When we work together, this collective force translates into more power and a better chance of getting our voices heard.
Union workers need the assurance that our workplace rights, including health and safety conditions, are being upheld and monitored and ensure the ability to challenge any unfair or questionable decisions or action.
Union workers join, not because we’re against our employer, but because we want to improve our jobs by joining with co-workers to gain greater respect and control over our worksite and employment.
