As a CWU faculty member, you are automatically represented by UFC. There is no representation fee. But membership is voluntary. Members pay dues, scaled by salary, as detailed in the table below. One benefit of membership is that you may vote in union elections, on contract ratifications, and on union policy and procedural changes. But most importantly, your membership strengthens our united voice.
