Through contracts negotiated by our local affiliates, MEA fights for better working-teaching-learning conditions and competitive salaries, insurance coverage, and benefits.
MEA staff members ensure your contractual and legal rights are protected through grievances and legal services.
Our legislative program lobbies the Maine Legislature and Congress for school funding, education laws that make sense, and licensure requirements that meet the needs of the profession. We also oppose those political interests who would ruin public education.
Our professional programs support student instruction, classroom management, and personal and professional growth. Our special services programs provide consumer benefits with substantial economic benefit to members.
