Professional Development

North Dakota United is dedicated to providing researched-based, member-driven, relevant, high quality programs to advance skills, while providing a network for shared communication and leadership opportunities.

At The Capitol

All educators and public employees deserve the support, resources, and time to do their jobs well, and the security to retire with dignity. Through the ND United's advocacy at the state capitol, we work to create public K-12 schools, colleges, universities, and public services that are worthy of our great state.

The earliest thing I learned about negotiating was from my dad. I remember him shouting over the megaphone outside of a city board meeting about unity: We move as one. Wherever we go and whatever we do, as a union we move together. We cannot hope to make any notable difference in our locals if we act separately from each other.

We Can't Do It Without You

The foremost benefit of your membership in NDU is your combined power, at the negotiating table with school boards, in the halls of the state Legislature, and in the decision-making process when elected officials and administrators are determining your pay, benefits and terms of employment.
