Nebraska educators know that their job security, salary, benefits and working conditions are only protected and improved through their local association and the NSEA. For 156 years, NSEA has fought for public education, educators and students.   

Membership and Bargaining
Building and maintaining maximum membership in your local association is a source of power at the bargaining table and in the workplace. This requires engaging all members and inviting potential members to join. As local associations continue to work through the year-round bargaining calendar, they should engage members in issues that are important to them in their personal and professional lives through the power of collective bargaining. Providing affordable, high-quality health care benefits is an important tool to improving retention and recruitment.
