    (Here’s a list of some of the Administrative Professional job titles eligible for voluntary membership in UPTE)
  2. Fill out the form and sign it.
  3.  You can also scan the form and email it to

Please also consider becoming a COPE contributor, so UPTE can have a strong political presence in Sacramento and Washington, DC.

PLEASE NOTE: even though your pay stub may show a “fair share” contribution to UPTE if you are in a unit covered by an UPTE contract, you are not a member of UPTE unless you have filled out and sent in a member application. Being a member entitles you to participate fully in your union, including voting in elections and for contract ratifications.

Membership benefits include:

  • By having more members who have filled out the form, we are a stronger union and can negotiate better contracts.
  • You can vote for Davis Local Leadership and Systemwide Leadership
  • You will receive more frequent updates on the status of raises, benefits and other working conditions (but we won’t overload you!)
  • Voting on your contracts and having a voice in Sacramento.
  • Eligibility for a wide range of “union privilege” benefits, such as low-cost credit cards and mortgage loans

And most importantly, being a member allows you to contribute to helping make UC a better place to work for all of us.

Members are encouraged to participate in their local.
