DPE and Professional Associations

Unions promote high standards and quality work, improve the status of the professions and strengthen them as providers of meaningful, rewarding careers.  To bring that message to professionals, the Department has worked on common concerns with professional societies, including the American Public Health Association (APHA), the American Library Association (ALA) and the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), among others. 

Through work in committees and caucuses, DPE has assisted in the development of labor-oriented programs and policies.  Below are recent examples.
