AFT Granite is an affiliate of the 1.5 million-member American Federation of Teachers. In September, 1986, Albert Shanker, then President of AFT, signed the charter that formally established our Local 4429. AFT Granite members represent three AFT divisions: Teachers, Para-professionals and School Related Personnel (PSRP), and Healthcare (school nurses). We take pride in the quality of our work and proudly stand for independent workplace views. In AFT we promote the voices of first-hand experience to improve the lives of our members, our families, and the people we serve in education.
