National Employee Freedom Week (NEFW) is a national campaign aimed at educating teachers and other employees about their options regarding union membership. NEFW was co-created by AAE and the Nevada Policy Research Institute (NPRI) because labor unions like the NEA don’t inform their members of their legal rights to opt-out of membership, leaving millions of teachers and other employees completely unaware that they have options.
This year there is a coalition of 99 organizations spread across 42 states celebrating with us. Each of these organizations is deeply committed to giving teachers and other union members the information they need to make an informed decision about whether or not union membership is right for them.
Every day, teachers come to AAE as the trusted source to learn about their rights and the benefits of union alternatives. That is – at least in part – because AAE gives teachers a true member-driven voice. And this week, AAE is excited to release the results of a special member-survey about workforce and pension policy to share with educators and stakeholders across the country.
After a successful NEFW in 2014, we’re thrilled to be celebrating with teachers and supporters across the nation in the biggest NEWF yet. We firmly believe that teachers deserve to make informed decisions.
You can celebrate NEFW with us just by telling your friends that they have options! Stay tuned to the AAE blog for more information and the results of our new member survey!
