Between demands on your time and restrictions placed upon you as a federal employee, it is hard for DoDEA employees to speak out about the work-related issues that concern them.
FEA and NEA provide a voice for members at DoDEA headquarters, in the Pentagon, and on Capitol Hill, making sure decision makers are aware of the “real picture” facing faculty and staff in DOD schools.
Whether it’s calling upon management for changes to working conditions or calling upon Congress for changes in laws affecting our members and the families they serve, FEA – with fantastic assistance from NEA’s Government Relations department – ensures our members’ concerns and priorities are heard at the highest levels.
Over the years FEA and NEA have successfully advocated for the rights of members in so many ways:
Past outcomes are not a guarantee of the results in future matters, and the outcome of a particular case or matter cannot be predicated upon our union’s past results.

If you are aware of any legislation we should know about or believe there is a member issue that we could advocate for at the federal level, please contact us.
FEA fights for the salary, benefits, and respect you deserve. Become a member today.
