PSEA is a community of education professionals who make a difference in the lives of students every day.
Emily Nell came back to teach art and make an impact after spending 14 years as an independent artist working in schools and holding benefit auctions.
Pennsylvania’s public schools should be the safest and healthiest places for students to learn and grow.
PSEA is committed to making changes aimed at protecting everyone who works and learns in our schools.
HealthCare-PSEA wants to get the word out to colleagues who work in non-unionized health care facilities about the value of belonging to a union.

A special publication for HealthCare-PSEA members, Pulse highlights HealthCare-PSEA news and important issues.
Latest issue: Fall 2020
Since 2009, Pennsylvania healthcare workers have been protected from working mandatory overtime beyond their regular, agreed-upon work hours. Act 102, enforced by the PA Dept. of Labor & Industry, prohibits employers mandating overtime for workers who engage in direct patient care in healthcare facilities, including hospitals, long-term care facilities, among others.
Employees may choose to work available overtime beyond their regularly scheduled shift, and Act 102 protects them from retaliation for refusing to work additional hours. On-call hours cannot be used as a substitute for mandatory overtime, and there are limited exceptions for unforeseen, emergent circumstances. Physicians, physicians assistants, dentists, and service workers not engaged in patient care are not covered by the overtime protections of Act 102.
Board meeting minutes from earlier years are available to HealthCare-PSEA members upon request.
