Our union has negotiated one of the best job security contracts in the nation for non-tenure-track faculty members. Under our contract, you have the right to a continuing appointment after an excellence review in your sixth year, as well as a fair process for getting considered for reappointments in the first 6 years.
When you complete a membership form, your payroll deduction amount stays the same. It costs you nothing to join. As a member, you will have the right to vote for or against contract ratification, and in union officer elections.
As a member, you will receive more frequent communications about union activities, and other important issues facing our members.
As a member, you will be eligible for various supplemental insurance programs, mortgage loans, a credit card with a good cash rebate deal, and various discounts etc, through AFT’s Union Plus program.
As a member, you will be part of a statewide organization of academics working together to address the challenges faced by Non-Senate Faculty at UC. Your involvement matters.
