Join the Utah Education Association!

UEA works to promote, advance, and protect public education, the education profession, and the rights and interests of our members.

The Value of Membership

Salary and Benefits

Simply put, educators deserve professional pay for professional work — and the members of UEA are the premiere advocates fighting to ensure you’re paid what you’re worth. This also means stopping legislative cuts to your benefits such as health insurance and retirement.

Respect

From the local school board to the state legislature, elected officials are making decisions that impact your schools — join our union and be a part of the discussion. UEA members form the strongest voice advocating for educators and students across Utah. We’re fighting against the standardized test regime, raising the need for fair evaluations, and standing in solidarity to secure fair wages for every worker in our schools.

Networking

Being an educator can be stressful — but you’re not alone. UEA members have a support system of thousands of educators and UEA who live and work in your district. Whether you’re a new teacher who needs advice on a difficult classroom or a food service worker that’s pushing back against student lunch debt – our union members are here to provide support, experience, and their voices to your needs.

Professional Development

UEA is one of the largest providers of high-quality professional development trainings in the state. Take part in continuing education in everything from classroom management to teacher evaluations.

Leadership Training

Do you have big dreams to help your students and school? UEA has access to robust leadership training courses that will give you the skills to be an effective leader in your school, community, and state.

Legal Protection

Members get access to the best team of education law experts in the state. Having our liability insurance makes sure that UEA has you covered.

Member Discounts

Members can take advantage of deep discounts on vacations, movie tickets, life insurance, cars and more.

Member Voices: ‘Why do I support the Utah Education Association?”

My work with the UEA has helped me to collaborate with colleagues from around the state on developing assessment literacy curriculum to take back to our schools and then educate our teachers on how to best use data to impact their student learning at the classroom level.”
