The app also unlocks special member-only discounts for apparel, entertainment, travel, school supplies and more. The UFT leveraged the same power in numbers that it brings to the bargaining table with the Department of Education to negotiate vendor discounts for UFT members.
The app contains a digital version of the UFT membership card with the member’s UFT ID number. This six-digit UFT ID number is different from your employee ID number or your NYSUT ID number. You’ll use this number to register for UFT events, and we’ll ask for it when you visit or call a UFT borough office — in fact, you will use it whenever you interact with the union.
You can download UFT-Mobile in the App Store if you have an Apple cellphone or in the Google Play Store if you have an Android device. You log in to the app using the same username and password you use for the UFT website.
