New UUP Guide for Academics

A new 2014-15 edition of the UUP Guide for Academics at SUNY has been posted on the UUP website in two places (under For Academics and Reports/Guides on the home page). Here's the direct link:

Statewide Hearings on New York Health Bill

Please read this important memo regarding the upcoming series of public hearings on legislation to create the "New York Health" plan. These hearings will give UUP an opportunity to show our support for comprehensive, universal single-payer health care coverage for every New Yorker. To ensure a good UUP turn-out, please share this information and encourage members to attend and/or testify at these hearings.
In Solidarity,

Parking Changes at Upstate

The Parking Office recently converted to a new parking management system. The system will automatically assign each parker a new permit for the upcoming year. For more information about the new system, click here.

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.

Echo: A New ONLINE Edition of the Voice

Echo is the union’s new online membership magazine. Think of it as 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. To read Echo, 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.

Looking to Volunteer for UUP?

Our chapter is looking for some motivated individuals to help our efforts. If you are interested in volunteering, let us know and we'll see where you will make a good fit.

Benefit Trust Fund Rolls Out a New Delta Dental Option

UUP Benefit Trust Fund is pleased to offer you a new dental plan option that can save you money.

With DeltaCare® USA, a dental HMO-type program, there are no claim forms, deductibles or maximums for you to worry about.

Even better, you pay little or nothing for most diagnostic and basic restorative services, such as cleanings, exams and fillings. You can save on many other procedures as well.

For additional details about UUP’s DeltaCare® USA plan – including the copayments for all covered dental procedures - visit the UUP Member Benefits page.
