The Saint Paul Federation of Educators bargains contracts for all School and Community Service Professionals, Educational Assistants, and Teachers and other licensed staff who work in Saint Paul Public Schools. SPFE is proud of our long history fighting for the best contract possible for our members.

Negotiations for the 2019-2021 contract started on Thursday, May 30, 2019 and are scheduled for every second and forth Thursday from 4:30-8:30p.m. at SPFE starting in September. Summer and August dates will be posted on our website calendar.

Our negotiation sessions are open to the public, and we encourage members, parents, and community members to attend. Educators and parents are key partners in contract negotiations, and we often invite them to testify on the proposals we are bringing to the bargaining table. Bargaining alongside parents and the community fundamentally changed the way that SPFE approaches contract negotiations.
