A HUGE congratulations goes out to our friends at the Student Labor Action Project, the United States Student Association, and Jobs with Justice. Their relentless efforts forced Sallie Mae to quit the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) less than a year after they initially joined. We at the AFT are proud to have supported these organizations in their efforts to force Sallie Mae to become a more transparent financial institution, and we look forward to continuing the fight to provide better options for borrowers of Sallie Mae’s educational loans.
