Virginia Professional Educators
Educators by calling… Professionals by choice!
Virginia law prohibits monopoly bargaining for teachers, but that doesn’t mean teacher unions are no less powerful in the Commonwealth. It does mean teacher union officials have a lot more cash to throw after politicians, making them a powerful political force to be reckoned with. It also means teachers do not have to worry about losing their right to vote on contracts since there are none.
If you are a Virginia teacher looking for an association to meet your professional needs, consider Virginia Professional Educators.
Virginia Professional Educators (VPE) is a nonprofit professional association of educators offering many of the same benefits that teacher unions provide — but at a fraction of the cost. Also, VPE avoids the partisan politics and controversial social agendas of teacher unions.
VPE has been serving Virginia teachers for over a decade, and now represents several thousand members across the Commonwealth. VPE is also part of a national coalition of over 325,000 teachers who have chosen to belong to a non-union professional association of educators.
Virginia Professional Educators provides teachers with all of the professional services and benefits we need as educators – but at a much lower cost than the teacher unions. Moreover, we respect each teacher’s right to have their own political opinions, and we honor our members’ personal beliefs by avoiding controversial issues that are unrelated to the classroom.
Thousands of Virginia teachers have already joined us. We’d be honored to have you join us also.
