What is a union free school district? A union-free school

district is a school district in which the school employees

(teachers, teachers aides, clerical employees, support staff etc.)

are not represented by a labor union. This means that the wages,

hours of work, and conditions of employment, including academic

freedom (or the lack of it) are at the sole discretion of the

employer and can be changed by the School District Administration

as it deems necessary. The only limitations on this latitude are

laws or regulations that may exist in State Education Codes and

state or federal civil rights laws. Schools are exempt from federal

wage and hour laws, so overtime in schools is not regulated. The

above is entirely incorrect. A union free school district has

absolutely nothing to do with labor unions. According to the NY

State Department of Education:
