MISSION

AFUM is the exclusive bargaining agent for full-time faculty at the seven universities of the University of Maine System, including the Cooperative Extension.  Affiliated with both the National Education Association and Maine Education Association, AFUM's goal is to provide the best representation possible to all members.

WEINGARTEN RIGHTS

In NLRB v. J. Weingarten, Inc., 420 US 251 (1975), the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that unionized employees have the right under the National Labor Relations Act to the presence of a union representative during any management inquiry that the employee reasonably believes may result in discipline.  We advise you to make the following statement, printed on the back of your MEA membership card, before such a meeting with your supervisor or another administrator:

If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I respectfully request that my union representative, officer, or steward be present at the meeting.  Without representation, I choose not to answer any questions.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact us.
