The Affirmative Action Plan for the NEA. [Fourth Edition].
National Education Association, Washington, DC.
This fourth revision of the Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) of the National Education Association (NEA) outlines NEA policy and regulations and incorporates quantitative information on current NEA employment levels and hiring goals for women and minorities. A brief policy statement is followed by a review of objectives, including the general objectives of employing minorities in percentages at least equal to their representation in the labor forces from which NEA seeks applicants, and employing disabled persons whenever possible. A responsibility assignment section states that all members of NEA management staff share the responsibility for AAP implementation and details the specific responsibilities of the director of employee relations for administering, monitoring, and assessing management compliance. Current utilization percentages of women and minorities compared to objectives within six job categories--executive, managerial, professional, technical support, administrative and clerical support, and trades and crafts--are summarized in tables, as are annual goals for categories in which underutilization occurs. Implementation practices and procedures including guidelines for recruitment, selection, promotion, community action, advertising in NEA publications, and purchasing are given. A reporting system to assist AAP evaluation is described briefly, and an appendix shows the distribution of job titles within job categories. (MJL)
