Member Benefits

Why join the UAFP? There are tremendous benefits to being a UAFP member. First and foremost, you become part of a strong collective that works together towards pay increases, job security and improved conditions for Pace adjuncts overall. And second, you gain a voice in determining the priorities of this collective and how it operates. While the UAFP represents all members of our Collective Bargaining Unit (CBU)* you have no voice in that representation unless you also become a UAFP member.

  • Only UAFP members can vote on the contract.
  • Only UAFP members may contribute suggestions or take part in the contract negotiation process.
  • Only UAFP members can hold union office, nominate officers and serve on committees.

Doesn’t it make sense for you to contribute to the discussion and have a voice in your future? If you want to be heardjoin the UAFP now! Click here to download our Membership Enrollment Form. Complete and return to the address, fax number or e-mail on the form. (Don’t forget to sign it!)

Excluded are adjunct faculty and part-time instructors employed in the School of Law.

Pace University Benefits for Adjuncts

We regret to inform our adjuncts that the Health Insurance Reimbursement program has been cancelled and will not be renewed because of legalities connected with the Affordable Care Act.
