For Members

Default Introduction Image

North Dakota United is an organization of our members, by our members, and for our members. We represent public educators and employees, higher education and education support professionals, students and retired members.

By becoming a member of North Dakota United, the state’s largest and most effective union of public educators and public employees, you are uniting with more than 11,500 public professionals across the state of North Dakota. Additionally, you become affiliated with 4.7 million combined members of our two national affiliates, the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers.

Those numbers add up. The foremost benefit of your membership in North Dakota United is that benefit of association. You benefit from your combined power, at the negotiation table with school boards, in the halls of the state Legislature, and in every decision that elected officials and administrators make in determining your level of pay, benefits and the terms of your employment.

You benefit from the combined resources available to you through your association, including expert assistance in all matters of advocacy, public relations and legal matters, scholarships and grants that are available to you and your family members, professional development opportunities across the state and insurance programs, including full-coverage liability protection.

You also benefit from your combined buying power, with discounts on insurance, health care, legal and financial services, travel, entertainment and shopping.

The U in NDU stands for United, but it also stands for YOU. Our union of professionals in public education and public services, of 11,500 public workers, is our greatest asset available to you, when you join. Our combined power is your power, as a member of North Dakota United.

You are the U in NDU. We. Are. United.
