Any Western faculty member can become a member of UFWW by downloading the membership form, filling and signing the document digitally, and sending a completed copy to your departmental steward or UFWW membership coordinator, Peter Pihos (pilosp@wwu.edu). To sign the document digitally, follow these instructions:

  • To Sign Document in Preview // Open fillable PDF. When you reach the "Member Signature" field, click on the "Show Markup" icon at the top (it looks like a pen within a circle). Once the markup toolbar is pulled up, choose the "Signature" function and use the trackpad to sign your document.
  • To Sign Document in Adobe Acrobat // Open fillable PDF. When you reach the "Member Signature" field, click on the "Signature" icon at the top (it looks like a fountain pen tip). Then, use the trackpad to sign your document.
  • You can also print the document, sign it manually, and scan it using a home scanner or app like TurboScan, then send it to the appropriate recipient.
  • You can find information on the benefits and fees associated with joining UFWW here. We appreciate your membership and welcome your involvement in creating a vibrant and democratic faculty union!
