LANSING — Michigan public school teachers who are facing pay freezes and pay cuts might be surprised to learn that the dues they pay to their national unions helped give the national presidents 19 percent and 22 percent raises in 2011.

American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten had her base salary increase from $342,552 in 2010 to $407,323 in 2011, while National Education Association President Dennis Van Roekel‘s base salary jumped from $298,387 in 2010 to $362,644. The salary information was taken from the unions most recent LM-2 reports.

Van Roekel’s total compensation went from $397,721 to $460,060 from 2010 to 2011, while Weingarten’s total compensation jumped from $428,284 in 2010 to $493,859 in 2011.
