Election season is upon us

UUP elections will begin soon. The first step to getting elected as an officer or a delegate in the union is to be nominated, this will get your name on the ballot that our members will vote on. The entire election calendar is available online at the UUP statewide website.

Newsletter has been published online

The latest edition of the Advisor has been posted online here. This online edition is jam-packed with color photos and many articles that are important to use as union, consumers and family members. The printed edition will be delivered soon.

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.

The New Contract is Online in PDF

The 2011-2016 Agreement between UUP and NYS is posted under the contract link at the top of the UUP home page.
