What do JESPA Members Say?
JESPA membership is important to me because I know I am supported for the job I do! And I matter!
Thanks to the raises JESPA fought for, I finally make enough to qualify for a home loan. I know it seems like a small thing, but it means so much to be able to buy property!
I joined JESPA to make sure our workplace is fair and to stop the mistreatment of workers. We work together to make sure we get the pay and benefits we deserve.
JESPA provides support, leadership, and you know they have your back! I cannot imagine NOT being in JESPA.
I am a JESPA member because I value having a profession I can be proud of. Thanks to my union membership, I have been able to stay in Jeffco and make improvements to my working conditions!
