I don’t remember if I joined the union. How can I find out?

If you aren’t sure whether or not you are already a member, look at your pay stub. If the deduction code says “UFT—,” (with a dash after the “UFT”), it means you are a member; if the deduction code is “UFT,” with no dash, you are not a member but there is still a deduction, called an agency fee, for services the union provides. If it turns out that you are not a member, joining is very simple. Your chapter leader can give you a UFT membership form or you can enroll online.
