JCEA has negotiated salary and working conditions with Jeffco Public Schools since 1968.

On January 1st 1968, the Jefferson County Education Association won its first binding negotiated agreement with Jefferson County Public Schools. This marked the beginning of 50 years of protecting teacher voice, educator empowerment, and collective strength. This was the beginning of our union.

The ability to reach a good negotiated agreement is dependent on a strong, engaged membership and community.
