Members Ask: Is AFT Affiliation A Long-Term Commitment?

This Q&A is part of a continuing series that we introduced with the “Taking a Hard Look at Our Future Starts with Asking the Hard Questions” article

Would there be a probationary period for AFT in which UHPA members can determine if this association is beneficial to us or not? Or is this a long term commitment?

Should the UHPA Board of Directors decide to affiliate with AFT, we anticipate the affiliation will be a lasting partnership.  However, affiliation with AFT does not need to be permanent nor is it in perpetuity.  Should the UHPA Board of Directors determine that the affiliation is not serving UHPA’s needs, the Board may decide to disaffiliate with AFT through a majority vote, provided requisite notice is given to AFT.
