Registering for the AFT Local 1828 Website

The AFT Local 1828 website is a website operated by the Ventura County Federation of College Teachers (the AFT Local 1828). Many of the resources on this site are accessible to all visitors; however, there are other areas to which access is restricted to current union members only.

To access the restricted areas of this website you must meet both of the following criteria

  • You must be a current AFT Local 1828 union member

  • You must be a registered user of this website.

If you do not meet either of the above conditions, please follow the instructions in the appropriate section below.

How to sign up for AFT Local 1828 union membership

To qualify for membership in the AFT Local 1828, you must be an active member of the faculty at one of the three Ventura County Community College District's colleges--Moorpark College, Oxnard College, or Ventura College. If you are a current faculty member and would like to join the union please click here, to complete our online signup form to authorized monthly deductions of union dues from your paycheck. Once you have completed the sign up process, your dues deductions will begin within 1-2 months; however, you will be covered by all the benefits of membership upon submission of the form.


If you are not sure whether you are a current member of the AFT Local 1828, you may confirm your status by checking your most recent VCCCD paystub.


If you are a current union member, you will see deductions for dues in the section displayed in the image to the left.
