On Tuesday, April 11, 2017 the teachers of the District 214 Education Association (EA) voted to affiliate with the Illinois Federation of Teachers and the Northwest Suburban Teachers Union, Local 1211. This historic decision was made possible as a result of the tireless efforts of members of the D214 EA membership, the D211 Teachers Council, Local 1211, and the Illinois Federation of Teachers. I would especially like to recognize the commitment, passion, and selfless work of D214 Education Association President Jim Arey and IFT Organizing Director Lorenzo MacDonald for without these two gentlemen, this newly forged alliance would not be possible.

Please join me in welcoming our sisters and brothers of D214 into Local 1211 and the IFT/AFT. I am excited about working shoulder to shoulder with the EA for many years to come.

In unity,

John Braglia

President
