It's Easy to Enroll in PATFA

All adjuncts in the University of Maine System are invited to participate in PATFA. You may use a simple, one-page enrollment form, revised in October 2016. It's under the "Membership," "Join the Union" drop-down tile. The Part-time Faculty Association of Maine is part of the American Federation of Teachers and the legal bargaining agent for some 2,000 part-time faculty members. Our two-year contract provides benefits and spells out mutual rights and responsibiliites.
