North Dakota United (NDU) is an organization created by the merger of the North Dakota Education Association (NDEA) and the North Dakota Public Employees Association (NDPEA). The Representative Assemblies of both organizations voted unanimously for the merger.

Combined membership includes K-12 teachers, ESP, Higher Education, state employees, county employees and municipal employees. The two organizations share a common dedication to the improvement of the economic and professional well-being of members, as well as a dedication to public service and the improvement of the lives of the North Dakota citizens they service.
