Econ- labor union members

posted by .

I am studying labor unions in my Econ class and would like to ask a member a few questions:)

Which labor union do you belong to? How long have you been a member? What do you see as the advantages of belonging to a union? What are the disadvantages?


  • Econ- labor union members -

    I was a member of the National Education Association, which functions as a union.

    I was a member for about 32 years until I retired from teaching several years ago.

    The NEA negotiated our contracts which included salaries and benefits. It defends teachers who are unfairly and unjustly accused and threatened with dismissal.

    I know of no disadvantages of membership in the NEA.
