    The two major teachers' union organizations in the U.S. are the AFT (American Federation of Teachers) and the NEA (National Education Association). Many local unions affiliate with one, the other, or both.

    The NEA has state affiliates in all 50 states. Here's a list of states that also have AFT affiliates:

    Alaska

    Arizona

    California

    Colorado

    Connecticut

    Florida

    Illinois

    Indiana

    Kansas

    Kentucky

    Louisiana

    Maine

    Maryland

    Massachusetts

    Michigan

    Minnesota

    Mississippi

    Missouri

    Montana

    New Hampshire

    New Jersey

    New Mexico

    New York

    Oklahoma

    Ohio

    Oregon

    Pennsylvania

    Rhode Island

    Texas

    Utah

    Vermont

    Washington

    West Virginia

    Wisconsin

    See the links below for links to the two organizations' state affiliates.

    Hope this helps,

    All states have teacher unions that teachers can join. The difference is that in some states, joining a union is required. In others, it's optional. The states where it is optional are called "Right to Work" states. Here's a website with a list of them: http://www.nrtw.org/rtws.htm

    unions are not a states thing. Every state has teacher unions within it. My union is specific to my district, youll find that there are hundreds of unions within any geographical area.

    The confusion might lie in the naming of other entitees. My union is called UTLA - united teachers Los Angeles. The exists a california teachers association that many people in the media call a union. They specialize in lobbying and working with legislatures on academic interests.
