Why should you join?
Florida is a “right to work” state. That means that membership in the union that represents you at the bargaining table is not automatic. In other words, everyone can enjoy the benefits of our collective bargaining agreement without paying dues. However, your membership in our union allows you the benefit of our contract and much, much more. Most importantly it contributes to PRBSU’s collective voice, making us all more effective. It gives you a voice to advocate for yourself and your colleagues, whether meeting in Labor/Management talks, serving on committees, advocating with the state legislature or negotiating your Collective Bargaining Agreement. There is strength in numbers! Our collective strength will come back to you in increased salary and improved working conditions.
In addition, PRBSU’s respective local provides a number of specific benefits that are only for dues-paying members and their families. These include:
As a member, you are eligible to receive your locals representation should you need to file a grievance. You also have the right to representation in any meeting with a supervisor that you feel may result in disciplinary action. Non-members must either represent themselves or hire outside legal assistance. This is a benefit that can potentially save you tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees.
A voice in defining priorities and plans
PRBSU’s locals are led by its members. We define our plans and priorities collegially and democratically. As a member, you have a say in all matters concerning your local, including how we negotiate our contract, how we defend employee rights and due process, and who represents us as officers.
PRBSU’s affiliation with the Florida Education Association and our national affiliates entitles members to discounts in a host of services and goods, large and small. Here are some highlights:
This contains information on how to access your benefits, as well as, flyers on: student loan forgiveness, Resort Vacation Certificates, assistance if you're out of work, lawyer referrals for personal issues, FREE COLLEGE for you and your FAMILY, Theme Park discounts, and more.

As trends continue to lean toward High Deductible Health Plans (HDHPs), it's more important than ever to offer supplemental benefits to help offset the additional out-of-pocket expenses your employees may experience. And, with lifestyle-protection products like disability insurance and life insurance, you can protect what matters most.
Unlike many benefits providers who offer one-size-fits all plans, American Fidelity believes your benefits package should be customized to your unique needs. We create solutions for you to help maximize your coverage without affecting your bottom line.
Creative Benefits for Educators is owned by locals of the Florida Education Association and was created to make it easy for teachers and school employees to find the best insurance, retirement and financial programs available.
