AAUP/AFT Affiliation

Delegates to the June 2022 Biennial Association Meeting voted overwhelmingly to ratify the action of the Council that the American Association of University Professors affiliate with the American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO. This affiliation builds on our ten-plus year partnership with AFT and strengthens both organizations, while ensuring that the AAUP will maintain its independence and autonomy. Together, we represent more US higher education workers than any other union.
