The Manchester Education Association is the local unit of the National Education Association and the premier professional educator’s association. MEA works collaboratively with colleagues, the parents, and the community to bring about the schools Manchester students deserve. Our research into class size, equity literacy, and organizing for the common good are the focus to help us achieve the best public schools in New Hampshire. With 1100+ members, the ability of the MEA to lead changes in the city is unparalleled.

We are currently focused on negotiations and achieving a successor contract.

We are gearing up for another cash calendar to benefit our political action funds. We are also planning a social at the Backyard Brewery in April.

Important Tax Preparation Information for Members
The Revenue Reconciliation Act of 1993 eliminated the individual federal income tax deduction for lobbying expenses paid or incurred as part of membership dues.
This affects only those members who itemize deductions and meet the two-percent minimum requirement for additional miscellaneous deductions.
Those members will not be able to deduct that portion of the NEA–NH 2017-2018 union dues attributable to lobbying. The non-deductible portion of the dues for 2017-2018 is 6.40%.
