Join the AFT Local 1796

For the more than twenty five years of our existence, through the Council of New Jersey State College Locals, we have been affiliated with AFT Locals from the 9 state colleges and universities (excluding Rutgers University) in the State of New Jersey.

Our dues allow us to pursue contract negotiations, processing of grievances and arbitrations, lobbying the Legislature and Governor for improved budgets for higher education, collaboration with labor affiliates and student organizations, and drafting of proposed legislation for employees and higher education in general.

As a new employee, you are eligible to be represented by this Union.  Once you are a member, you will receive all the rights, protections and benefits of a Union, including the right to vote in our organization. Union members pay dues of 1.1 % of their yearly salary bargained for by this Union.

We hope you will add your name and strength to our organization by joining the Union. To join you must fill out a membership card, which you can complete online by visiting our council website, www.cnjscl.org and clicking the “Join the Union” button.  Alternatively, you may obtain a hard copy membership card by contacting your department’s representative or the Union office (see below).
