Representing Non-Senate Faculty and Librarians of the University of California
Welcome to the Website of the University Council - American Federation of Teachers
UC-AFT is the union of non-Senate faculty and librarians working throughout the University of California. We represent over three thousand academic employees on all ten UC campuses. Since the formation of our union in 1982, we have worked to improve wages, working conditions, job security and benefits for our members. Today, our lecturers have one of the strongest non-Senate faculty contracts in the nation. Yet, our struggle continues for market rate salaries, adequate professional development funding, reasonable workloads, better job security, and ultimately, an equitable system of academic appointments for librarians and teaching faculty at UC.
"Under the proposed California bill... The for-profit college sector may have figured out a way to buy its way into the backdoor of the most credible and prestigious public universities the country has ever known. It doesn’t need to build it if it can transfer you into it."
