The Voice of the Teachers
Since 1972

Welcome to the Hammond Teachers Federation Local 394 website!

I would like to welcome to the Hammond Teachers’ Federation Website. I hope you find the site useful. Our public portion of the site contains news and events relevant to our members and the stakeholders of public education in the city of Hammond. This is also the place that the great work of our teachers and community members is on display. Additionally, you will find information from our affiliates: AFT Indiana and AFT National as well as our social media feeds. The Member Center contains relevant information for our members.

The Hammond Teachers’ Federation is a community of colleagues joined for the common good. We support one another’s personal and professional success and we stand together and we fight-for each other, for our public schools, the teaching profession, and our community.

We are a union of professionals that champions fairness; democracy; economic opportunity; and high-quality public education, healthcare and public services for our students, their families, and our community. We are committed to advancing these tenets through community engagement, organizing, collective bargaining, and political activism.

Members of the HTF and AFT affiliates can join us at our monthly membership meetings that take place the first Monday of each month during the school year.

If you are seeking additional information about the Federation, that is not on the public portion of the site, please contact our office.
