The UFT mailed a new membership card with a member ID number to every UFT member in May. The UFT app for members only is now available for download, too.
Your new six-digit member ID number is on the back of your membership card. This UFT ID number is different from your employee ID number or your NYSUT ID number. You’ll use this number from now on to register for UFT events, and we’ll also ask for it when you visit or call a UFT borough office or request union forms — in fact, you will use it whenever you interact with the union. Keep your union card in your wallet so you have ready access to it.
If you haven’t done so already, please download the union’s new app in the App Store if you have an Apple cellphone or in the Google Play Store if you have an Android device. You can use UFT-Mobile to access special member-only discounts for apparel, gifts, travel and more.
The app contains a digital version of the UFT membership card with your member ID number. You can use it to show you’re a UFT member, whether for UFT services or for member discounts.
UFT-Mobile offers a simple, fast way to connect with your union, from registering for classes to calling a specific UFT program or service to getting involved in the latest campaign.
You log in to the app using the same username and password you use for the UFT website.
