Below you will find links to our parent organization, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), which itself is associated with the largest union in the country – the American Federation of Labor & the Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). You will also find a link to AFT’s Pennsylvania site. All three sites contain information about state and national level labor news. TUGSA also partners with the Temple Association of University Professionals (TAUP), the faculty union which now includes adjunct faculty. The final link is to the United Academies of Philadelphia (UAP), which is an area wide union for adjunct faculty. Both TAUP and UAP are part of AFT.
