Welcome to the MTA! Whether you're 22 or 52, or somewhere in between, MTA is committed to supporting you in the critical early years of your career.

When you join your local association, the MTA and the National Education Association (NEA), you are joining a family of more than 3 million preschool-through-grade-12 educators, higher education faculty and staff and education support professionals. It is an opportunity to work with others who share your professional goals and concerns.

We are a union, dedicated to improving the workplace and the quality of life for all education employees and to protecting their hard-won rights. Equally important, we are an association of highly qualified professionals, committed to establishing and maintaining optimal conditions for student learning from preschool through graduate school.

NEA, MTA and local affiliates are highly democratic organizations in which members’ views and concerns are vital to the development of policies and programs. Your threeway membership means you have a voice in determining priorities and direction in your school district, in Boston and in Washington. We really do work together for public education!
