Welcome to the Arlington Education Association (AEA). The AEA is an organization of Arlington Public Schools (APS) employees who support our union through member dues, and who advocate for employee rights, fair treatment under APS policies and procedures, and a competitive employee compensation package, including salaries commensurate with the cost of living in Arlington.

Our union is directed by a member-elected Executive Board, with the President as its chief spokesperson and leading public advocate. The AEA also supports numerous committees which assist our union in its work.

Please take a few minutes to review our ongoing activities and current newsletter. If you’re an employee of APS, and not yet a member, we encourage you to join us. We value your membership and welcome your comments and questions. It is our union that makes us strong!

As professionals who have dedicated our careers to the education of the next generation, we’ve earned the right to be treated with respect and fairness. We all know that’s not always the case. 


Negotiated contracts can go a long way toward ensuring professional treatment. 


“I was left without choice to cover classes, many times alone and without pay as a substitute teacher,” says Trina Congress of the Education Association of Alexandria, an instructional assistant. “When I voiced my concerns, I became a target of degradation and chastising in front of my co-workers. If I had been a part of collective bargaining at that time, it would have prevented me from working without correct pay and would have stopped me from retaliation for speaking up about it.”
