Colorado Education Association Records
Scope and Contents
- 1876 - 1970
In 1967 the Colorado Education Association helped create a collective bargaining agreement between the Denver Classroom Teachers Association and the Denver School Board. This was the first agreement of its kind in Colorado, and afterwards the CEA went on to create similar agreements in over 15 other counties during the late 1960s. It was not until 1977 that the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that these kinds of negotiations were legal in the state.
Ever since the late 1960s the CEA has wielded great influence in Colorado education, not only negotiating in their own right but also training local unions in the process of negotiating and writing contract language. The CEA has also given advisement to other state groups such as the Colorado Nurses Association. The CEA is the largest teachers union in Colorado and has associated groups in each counties of Colorado. It is itself associated with the National Education Association.
