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, Lysa Rivera (lysa.rivera@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!
