  • Grievances
  • Terminations
  • Layoffs
  • Promotions
  • Reclassifications
  • Pay issues
  • Health and Safety Issues
  • Worker’s Rights

Attorney Referral Program

The NDU Attorney Referral Program provides members with legal advice on personal matters. Each eligible member is entitled to a free, 30-minute consultation session during each membership year.

In the event that you need legal representation in criminal, family, estate planning, or other matters, the attorney referral program lets you get that help at rates below participating attorney’s usual fees. 

The program is offered by both the NEA and the AFT.  The benefits of the two national affiliates are very similar, but members should always ask questions, particularly about the fees, before engaging an attorney.
