Teacher Safety: Information and Resources from CEA

Every educator has the right to a safe working environment. As your union, CEA wants to ensure that if you are threatened or assaulted at school, appropriate steps are taken to protect you.

That’s why we’ve made resources available to you on the CEA website—everything from reporting forms to model contract language to information about scheduling a CEA workshop. These resources aim to educate you about your rights and provide your local Association with the necessary tools to address your safety concerns.

If you have specific concerns about your safety, don’t wait. Contact your local president or CEA UniServ Representative.
