Welcome to Your Union
Members of EMUFT are part of a community working to improve the conditions for non-tenure track faculty at EMU; Teaching conditions = Learning conditions. Joining makes you part of this community.
EMUFT is local 9102 of the American Federation of Teachers. We are over 100 full-time lecturers and library staff, over 600 part-time lecturers, and together we are half of the teaching faculty at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
EMUFT is a member-driven organization! As member of EMUFT, we have improved the conditions for teaching at EMU and have created better educational spaces for our students. The more our members are involved, the more we can do to improve.
If I went to work in a factory,
the first thing I'd do is join a union.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The labor movement did not diminish the strength of the nation but enlarged it. By raising the living standards of millions, labor miraculously created a market for industry and lifted the whole nation to undreamed of levels of production. Those who attack labor forget these simple truths,
but history remembers them.
