UC-AFT Retiree Chapter: About Us


Our retiree chapter was formed in spring of 2017 to facilitate involvement of members in their locals and in the broader political activities of UC-AFT, CFT, and AFT.  Any UC-AFT member who has retired or left employment from the University of California is eligible to join.  It is not necessary to have worked long enough for UC to have vested in UCRP to join our chapter: for some of our part-time lecturers, this would take many, many years.  Dues are $48 per year, with an optional "sustaining" dues level of $100 per year for those who would like to contribute more.  Recalled retirees who are paying dues to UC-AFT through payroll deduction have their retiree chapter dues waived. 

All retired members of UC-AFT are automatically members of AFT, for which no dues are collected.  Our chapter dues all go to support our own chapter's activities.  To join, all that is required is to pay the chapter dues, either by check or through paypal.  

To pay by check, send your check, made out to UC-AFT Retiree Chapter, to Stephanie Kay, Treasurer, 628 55th St., Oakland CA 94609.  Please include your postal address and current email address (preferably not a UC email address) with your check.  

To pay via paypal, log in to your paypal account and "send money" to, including your name and postal address in the "add a note" section on the paypal menu.  This email address is a special account set up solely for paypal transactions.
