Attention Upstate IT Professionals

Your union wants to better serve you on the job. To accomplish this, we ask for your assistance in collecting information about the work you and other IT professionals do on your campus. This information is vital to properly defining IT titles [list pop-up] on SUNY campuses. We hope you’ll help us gather this data by participating and encouraging your IT colleagues to as well.

Please go to the UUP statewide website and click on the “For Professionals” tab in the upper right corner of the site. Follow the "Take the A-32 Advisory Committee IT Survey now!" link, where you will find instructions on how you can contribute to this very important effort.

If you know anyone whose job functions are mostly IT Job Titles but is not in a traditional IT position, please let pass this message along. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. We thank you for your cooperation!

Upstate Chapter Secretary

UUP 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?
