[Madison, Wis...] Wisconsin's largest teachers' union suffered a decline in revenue of more than $3 million between 2014 and 2015, the largest decline in the country, according to a new study by the Education Intelligence Agency.
The Wisconsin Education Association Council's (WEAC) revenue in 2014-15 was $3,373,510 less than in 2013-14. Only the Indiana State Teachers Association came close in lost revenue, suffering a year-over-year decline of slightly less than than $3 million.
Late last year, WEAC put its 51,000-square-foot headquarters up for sale with an asking price of $6.9 million.
WEAC also lost 5,239 members during the same period, the third largest decline among state teachers' unions. Only the Alabama Education Association and the Michigan Education Association lost more members, the study found. The Alabama union lost 9,766 members and Michigan's lost 6,290.
