Authorization for Payroll Deduction of Dues

You become a member of UC-AFT at no additional cost.  All non-members pay fair share fees (indicated by the AGENCY FEE line on pay stubs) to support the costs of bargaining and representation.  Members pay dues that are identical to the amount of fair share fees. Dues will be deducted each month from your payroll check. 

UC-AFT fair share fees and dues are 1.5% of gross monthly salary, with a cap of $100 per month, for librarians and non-Senate faculty who have exclusive representation. This form does not authorize dues deduction for appointments outside of UC-AFT bargaining units. Non-represented Academic Senate faculty and academic researchers may join UC-AFT and authorize dues deduction using the Non-represented Membership Form.

Check your campus ID card to find the number. If you don't have it, leave this field blank.
