Making Rhode Island public schools great for every child!

Working Rhode Island

Working Rhode Island is the largest labor coalition in Rhode Island history. One hundred thousand unionized workers who make up the coalition membership hail from such diverse groups as 229 RI AFL-CIO affiliates, and independents like NEA Rhode Island, the United Nurses and Allied Professionals, the University of Rhode Island Chapter of the American Association of University Professors and the Rhode Island Brotherhood of Correctional Officers, among others.

In all, 305 labor unions have adopted the joint mission of returning dignity and respect to the Rhode Island workplace. Individuals who agree with the cause are also invited to become members.

NEARI represents 82 local associations and more than 10,500 education and/or public employees - about one out of every 100 Rhode Island citizens.
