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.
