Your AEA “Team” is made up of teacher bargainers who are representative of the Union membership. Team members are nominated by the President, approved by the Executive Board, and they serve 5-year terms. The Bargaining Team is charged with directing the bargaining process on behalf of the Association on matters pertaining to salary and working conditions. Salary, health benefits, transfers, leaves and the length of the work day are all mandatory subjects of bargaining under state law. If its competitive salary, quality health care or effective problem solving that “floats your boat,” then it’s time you talk with the AEA President about serving on the AEA’s Bargaining “Team”.
