The Racine Education Association(REA)and the Racine Educational Assistants Association(REAA) are the local unions representing teachers, nurses, psychologists, social workers, and educational assistants in the Racine Unified School District. The REA and REAA have a combined governance structure that forms the Racine Educators United. We use the term professional union because we are both a professional association and a union.
We are a democratically run association operating with a group of dedicated unpaid Association Representatives in each building. Our elected governance sets the policy for our locals and determines what programs we provide. Every member participates in electing the leadership.
Angelina Cruz, President (REU)
