The primary benefits of union membership are using collective power of all union members to look out for the interests of each and all. A strong union leads to higher wages, better benefits, and improved working conditions.
NAPE/AFSCME members have access to our professional field staff and legal services team for all contract related needs, including free representation during the grievance process.
There are plenty of other benefits, in particular those that NAPE members (and their family) have access to through our parent union, AFSCME. These include:
- Discounts on food, flowers, and more
- Discounts on travel and entertainment
- Scholarship opportunities
- Great deals on financial counseling/services, and more
