Boise State Federation of Teachers, AFT/AFL-CIO
JOIN US IN PROTECTING FACULTY RIGHTS
IMPROVING SALARIES AND BENEFITS
The American Federation of Teachers has 1.5 million members and represents 200,000 faculty in higher education. Since 1973 the AFT has been the de facto faculty union for employee grievances on Idaho’s campuses. Our goal has always been to solve these problems without going to court, but when internal solutions have not been possible, our attorneys have been successful in 9 out of 12 major cases for a total of nearly $2 million in settlements and legal fees.
I wish to apply for membership to the Boise State University Federation of Teachers Local #3537 and its state and national affiliates. Membership in the Federation includes a $1,000,000 professional legal and liability policy, access to legal and moral support, and many AFT benefits accessible to you via the AFT national website, http://www.aft.org.
