Commit to becoming a member… and staying a member

There are many ways to fight back against the Trump administration. One of the most powerful is to stand strong with your Union. Our hard-working Precinct Reps and faculty organizers are reaching out to all faculty at CCSF, asking all faculty to recommit to their membership long-term through our New Membership Form.

We’ve heard some questions come up about the form. You can check out our new membership form FAQ’s. Please feel free to contact us if you need more information. We count on your membership. It’s the most fundamental way for you to support your Union.


Listening sessions — this week and next week

Over the next few weeks, as we lead-up to “sunshining” our bargaining proposals to the District, we urge you participate and make your voices heard in our democratic processes.

Our newly elected Bargaining Team members need to hear from everyone about bargaining issues ASAP! Many precinct representatives have already set up listening sessions and all faculty are invited. You can get the new contract surveys from your precinct rep, or at a listening session

Find out more

Please contact our union or your precinct representative if you would like to organize a listening session in your department.

What’s next?
We must “sunshine” our bargaining platform to the District in October. One way you can participate in our strategic campaign discussions is to attend our Delegate Assembly meeting on Tuesday, August 29 from 3-5pm on the Ocean Campus in MUB 140.

After that the final Bargaining Platform draft will go to our Delegate Assembly for a vote of approval at Evans Campus on Tuesday, September 26 from 3-5pm in room 220D.

New Membership Form FAQ – Fall 2017

Q: How can I get a New Membership Form so I can recommit to ongoing support of my faculty Union, AFT 2121?
A: The best way is to get in touch with your Precinct Rep​. If your department doesn’t have a rep, or if you’d like to send the form directly to AFT 2121, you can download and print the AFT 2121 membership form​.

Q: If I don’t complete a New Membership Form, what will happen to my membership?
A: We’d like every faculty member to recommit to membership, and to maintain their commitment long-term. However, if you don’t complete a form, your membership status will remain the same as it is currently.

Q: Why is our Union asking faculty to complete a New Membership Form?
A: Under Trump, we expect to face brutal attacks to Labor Unions and the rights of workers to organize collectively. Currently, the law requires everyone represented in negotiations by a Union to pay their fair share for that representation, also known as “agency fee”. The Janus vs. AFCSME case will likely mean that we lose fair share “agency fee” laws. This would be devastating to our ability to fight collectively for better wages and working conditions. We are getting ready to stand up to these attacks. Asking you to commit to your membership for a full calendar year is part of that fight back. The New Membership Form contains language that allows members to drop membership if they desire, but only once a year. The idea is to make sure that our Union’s funding is stable so that we can continue to do all of the negotiation and grievance work that our members depend on.

Q: What is COPE (the middle section of the form)?
A: COPE is a voluntary contribution to our Union’s political work. If you value the work we do to advocate for quality Public Higher Education and for Social Justice, you can add an additional monthly contribution to support that work.

Q: If I don’t fill out the COPE section, but I’m already contributing to COPE, what will happen to my COPE amount?
A: If you leave the COPE section blank, your COPE contribution will remain the same as it was before.

Q: What is the Life Insurance policy that’s listed on the bottom of the New Membership Form?
A: AFT National is now covering all active members for a small Accidental Death or Dismemberment Policy​. As long as you’re a member, you are covered whether or not you sign the section at the bottom. If you wish to add a beneficiary, you can do that by writing in their name on the form.

Many precinct representatives have already set up listening sessions and all faculty are invited. You can join a listening session with bargaining team members to discuss contract issues and priorities and these discussions will determine what gets put into our AFT 2121 Bargaining Platform.
