Bargaining Strong Contracts

You shouldn’t have to choose between following your passion and making a living.
Fair pay and fair benefits ensure the best and brightest can join and stay in our profession–for that’s what our communities deserve.
We’re tackling dignified pay, health care, debt support, and career security, so our incredible educators can stay focused on their students.

New Educator Organizing

In Oregon, educators have the legally protected right to join their union - the Oregon Education Association - to collectively advocate for better resources for their students and improved working conditions and compensation.
Helen Jacobs, ESP member
OEA has led the way to fund our schools, improved student learning conditions, and fought to reduce class size.

Together we're stronger. Together we're heard.

Ready, Set, Grow!

OEA provides high-quality, member-led professional learning to help educators improve their professional practice, support student success and excellence, and build community with other educators across Oregon.

What’s on Your Mind?

We’re here to help. Our community comes to us seeking tools (guides, reports, trainings, and more) to help answer everyday questions. We’re here to support you in whatever you need.
