About Us

We are educational/operational managers and leaders in the Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) who joined together in union to strengthen our working conditions and enhance our public school system.

United Administrators of Oakland Schools (UAOS) is affiliated with the American Federation of School Administrators (AFSA), AFL-CIO, as ASFA Local 83.

AFSA is 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, AFSA members recognize the importance of collective bargaining rights and their right to organize. AFSA members are active in the labor movement and proudly stand in solidarity with all trade unionists and school administrators.
