The Alaska Public Employees Association (APEA) was founded in 1955 as the Alaska State Employees Association for the purpose of lobbying on behalf of its members. It became the APEA in 1972 when the state granted state and local government employees the right to unionize. In 1990, the members of the APEA voted to join the American Federation of Teachers, with whom they are now affiliated.[1]
