Other events –
All AFT membership representatives were sent a list of FT/PT non-members in their department or office along with membership cards. They were asked to personally contact individuals on their list and discuss the importance of building our membership.
Recruitment letters have also been sent via campus mail and email to each non-member in either the FT/PT or AF bargaining units, explaining the benefits of joining the AFT and importance of increasing our membership to build our STRENGTH AT THE BARGAINING TABLE!
Having a high percentage of the bargaining unit as AFT members tells the State that you support your bargaining team in CLEAR STRONG VOICE.
Why might anyone not want to send that message?
