You are not automatically a member of the UC-AFT.  You are a member of Unit 18 or Unit 17, the units in which you are represented in collective bargaining by UC-AFT.  UC-AFT membership requires filling out a very brief membership form. 

 Membership Form:  Click here for an online membership form

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.  

You can mail the completed form to:
