DescriptionWEA began as a statewide education organization in 1889. For more than 80 years, membership included teachers and administrators. In the 1970s, following passage of a collective bargaining law for teachers, WEA evolved into a pro-active teachers union. Public schools have, of course, undergone tremendous change since statehood, but many of the greatest strides for school employee rights are relatively recent. Today, our members include teachers, librarians, counselors, higher-ed faculty, school psychologists, bus drivers, occupational and physical therapists, cooks, coaches, custodians, curriculum specialists, speech and language pathologists, nurses, secretaries, office assistants, classroom paraprofessionals, preschool specialists and technology experts.
