The MEA Advantage






MEA membership means harnessing the collective power of 150,000-plus members to bargain collectively for fair wages and working conditions for teachers and education support professionals, as well as high-quality education for our students.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though—MEA members receive numerous advantages for their careers, for their rights, for their wallets and for public education.

To learn more about the advantages of MEA membership—or for answers to any of your questions—call MEA's new Help Center toll-free at 866-MEA-HELP (866-632-4357), or live chat with a Help Center operator.

Here’s a breakdown of just some of the advantages of MEA membership:
