How do my colleagues and I form a union and join the IFT?
If you and your colleagues do not have a union and would like to begin the organizing process, contact Arnoldo Fabela, IFT Director of Field Mobilization.
Learn more about how to organize a union above.
Does the IFT control what happens in local unions?
No. Locals are autonomous and operate democratically, with members making decisions and acting in their own best interests. IFT is there to support - not to run - local unions.
Do I have to pay dues?
Yes. Your dues finance the work of the union – contract bargaining and enforcement; communicating our perspective with elected officials and the media; and harnessing the collective power of 103,000 members when we need it to advocate for education and public services and the best interests of our communities. Dues are not profit to the union, but only cover the costs of the benefits and services you receive through your membership. Dues are deducted from your paycheck, then distributed to your local union, the IFT, and our state and national affiliates based on amounts approved by the members.
How much are dues?
Dues are determined on a proportional, sliding scale, so they will vary depending on whether you work full or part time and how much you earn. A full-time teacher will pay the full dues rate based on his or her income, while a part-time food service worker will pay a reduced dues rate.
How does collective bargaining impact public education?
Studies by the National Education Policy Center, the Center for Evaluation and Education Policy, Harvard University and others have shown that collective bargaining rights correlate to increased student achievement.
When educators are part of a union and have a say at the bargaining table, they can use their voice to fight for smaller class sizes, professional development, academic freedom, school safety measures, and expanded services for students – all things which have a positive impact on student learning.
Why is collective bargaining under attack?
Because collective bargaining gives union members a voice, it also gives the middle class power. Billionaire CEOs, corporations, and politicians with ties to wealthy donors claim that collective bargaining is bad for the economy. They often advocate for so-called “right-to-work” laws, claiming they would benefit employees, businesses, and communities, but in reality, these policies widen the inequality gap and make the rich richer.
