About Us

PSASA is the exclusive bargaining agent for over five hundred middle managers of the Baltimore City Public School System. We represent principals, assistant principals, supervisors, specialists, directors, and coordinators. Our members run the schools and the offices that support instruction.

PSASA members work together to negotiate and enforce our contract with Baltimore City Schools that guarantees the things we care about like decent raises, affordable health care, job security, and a stable work schedule.

PSASA, Local 25, is an affiliate of the American Federation of School Administrators (AFSA), the exclusive national labor union for school administrators, professionals, and supervisors speaking out for excellence and equity in all of our schools, workplaces and communities.

AFSA members are leaders in their schools and communities and are charged with the privilege and responsibility of helping to mold our nation’s students into successful, mindful individuals.

As school leaders, AFSA members are constantly advocating for better public schools and systems of education. In regards to education reform, AFSA members support reforms that put students first and include school administrators in the discussion and implementation.

As a union affiliated with the AFL-CIO, PSASA is also a member of the Metropolitan Baltimore Council of AFL-CIO and the MD State and DC AFL-CIO. PSASA members recognize the importance of collective bargaining rights and their right to organize. PSASA members are active in the labor movement and proudly stand in solidarity with all trade unionists and school.
