UC-AFT negotiates statewide contracts

The University Council-AFT represents non-Senate faculty and librarians working in classrooms, libraries, education programs and professional schools on all 10 UC campuses at the University of California. UC-AFT negotiates statewide contracts for its members, unique among the divisions of CFT.

Since the formation of the union in 1982, UC-AFT has worked to improve wages, working conditions, job security and benefits for members. Today, lecturers have one of the strongest non-Senate faculty contracts in the nation. Yet, the 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 the University of California. UC-AFT has a long history of involvement and cooperation with senate faculty at UC, several hundred of whom have chosen to become members of the union.
