Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A new union that combines the North Dakota Education Association and the North Dakota Public Employees Association officially turns two days old on Labor Day.

The new organization is called North Dakota United.

The merger that has been in the works for several years gives the group more than 10,000 members, making it larger than all other unions in the state combined.

The two former groups have not always agreed on issues in the past, but leaders say the new marriage is based on common themes like protecting pensions and other benefits for workers.
