We have been the exclusive bargaining agent for educators in the Poughkeepsie public schools well over 35 years. Our local is part of the 600,000 member New York State United Teachers (NYSUT). We are affiliated nationally with the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the National Education Association (NEA), and are proud to be part of the AFL-CIO.
As Poughkeepsie educators, we recognize the need to maintain and build a healthy and meaningful relationship with the community we serve. We believe that communication between parents and teachers creates an atmosphere of cooperation and a unity of purpose that ensures the highest level of achievement for our students.
We invite you to continue exploring our website and hope that you can identify helpful information and resources.
