What Union Membership Does for YOU

As a member of OEA, ECEA, NJEA, and NEA, you are part of a community of education professionals—three million strong—devoted to advocating for students, educators, and great public schools.


Why Join the Union


The union gives members the opportunity to add their voices to conversations in Orange, in New Jersey, and in Washington D.C. on issues that affect education.


With the union, educators are never alone, whether they are defending their rights or advocating for positive change.


Members have access to advocacy training, professional development, and a community of professionals who share their passion for education.
