Why are unions so important?

Without unions, big companies like Walmart or Amazon can cut benefits, allow unsafe working conditions, slash wages, and pocket the massive profits.

Read about how important unions are to the economy.

Awareness.


Friedrick's Case has an Impact

From NYSUT Labor Relations Specialist Pete Ludden:

Here is a link to an article on the AFT's website about the Friedrich's case that is making its way to the Supreme Court. This case, if decided against us, could have a huge impact on our membership.



LEAD Institute

The Leadership Education Action Development Institute is offering a new series of online workshops for UUP leaders, prospective leaders and members interested in getting more involved with the union.

The 60-minute workshops, developed by NYSUT are free and available 24 hours a day. Members must register at www.uuphost.org/leadinstitute to view the courses.

For more information on LEAD Institute, contact NYSUT LRS Pat Domaratz at pdomarat@nysutmail.org


Echo: A New ONLINE Edition of the Voice

Echo is the union’s online membership magazine sort of a web companion to The Voice, with stories for and about members—stories that we can’t fit into the print edition of The Voice. Click on the blue banner on UUP's Statewide website.


What is VOTE-COPE?

VOTE-COPE is the Committee on Political Education, the non-partisan political action arm of NYSUT. Funded entirely by voluntary contributions from members, VOTE-COPE is used to help union-backed candidates and campaign commitees that support education and labor.

VOTE-COPE fights for your established rights* as a UUP teacher or staff member.

All you need to do is donate a couple of bucks. Please consider using payroll deduction or make a donation to make a contribution to help protect YOU.

*Collective Bargaining, particularly the Triborough Amendment (keeping benefits while working without a contract) may go away if we don't fight for it.


CGH Office Hours

On the last Tuesday of each month, an officer from UUP will have office hours at CGH in room 253 in the basement just around the corner from the classrooms A&B from 11 AM to 1 PM. Stop in to say hi or ask questions about UUP.
