Some union memberships dip in volatile climate

  // Monday, 11 August 2014 10:54 //

Total membership in the Louisiana Association of Educators, based on state statistics released by the national association, dropped to 12,334 in 2012-13, a 19 percent decrease since 2008-09, and a drop of 10 percent since 2011-12.

Ashley Davies, LAE’s communications specialist, told LaPolitics the losses are due to the economy, retirements and decreased investments in education by the state.

She said the numbers “are not a true representation of the overall LAE membership,” adding, “We are pleased to report that we have met and exceeded our membership goals for the 2014 calendar year.”

Asked by email if the membership figures were inaccurate, Davies did not respond.

Steve Monaghan, president of the Louisiana Federation of Teachers, said his group lost roughly 5,000 members after Hurricane Katrina, but has since bounced back to nearly 21,000 members today, up from around 17,000 in 2008-09.
