New Benefit Available at No Cost for All Active Members

July 28, 2017
Effective Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2017, all active, working AFT members in good standing will have $5,000 of accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance coverage provided at no cost to them through the national AFT. Coverage will double if the accidental death or injury* occurs at the workplace. Agency fee payers and retired members are not eligible for this benefit. Your local union can carry this coverage. If your local does not offer an AD&D benefit or you would like it to offer additional levels of coverage, you and your fellow union members can always call on the local to do so. Download a flyer with more information.

This Professor's Secret Could Save Your Life

by Roberta Riley, Northwest Health Law Advocates

Professors lead cushy lives. They get to stroll the grounds of stately, ivy-covered campuses, tailed by flocks of eager students who revere them as intellectual giants. Or so I’d always thought.

Then I met Susan. Susan is a smart, highly-educated professor. She lives in the Tacoma area where she works hard preparing lessons, grading papers and quizzes, and faithfully responding to every student inquiry.  Students praise her teaching skills.
