NEA Representative Assembly 2015: Merged Affiliates Stuck With Status Quo

Constitutional Amendment 1, which would given merged NEA-AFT state affiliates a full complement of delegates at future RAs, was resoundingly defeated in a secret ballot vote.

Needing a two-thirds majority to pass, the measure was able to garner only 16.1% of the delegate vote.

NEA’s $20 per member assessment for its national ballot initiative and media funds was made permanent¬†by a¬†74.5% to 25.5% margin.

An amendment to devote half of the union’s Great Public Schools Fund to organizing charter schools was rejected 85.1% to 14.9%.
