Collective Bargaining

Default Introduction Image

A full range of support is available to members as they negotiate just compensation and fair working conditions with their employers.

Field Consultants assist local negotiators through direct consultation, help with the development of contract language, analysis of contracts, and assistance with contract enforcement.  Staff also help locals prepare for impasse. NDU professional staff facilitate area and regional bargaining meetings.

The NDU research department provides salary and benefit comparison data and sample contract language for teachers and education support professionals.  In addition, a vast array of state and national education finance data and a file of all master agreements in the state are maintained.
