Since 2007, URA-AFT has been a member-led organization. The power of URA-AFT is in the membership and our collective voice. If you are not a member, you are relying on your member-colleagues to pay dues, and you will have no input on negotiated workplace rights.  These include our raises, promotions, medical and dental insurance, telecommuting and other benefits that are not negotiated at the department level.  Read more and join the union »
