This is the agreement that was reached to represent the contract between the New York State Executive Branch (Governor`s Office) and United Professions University (UUP) for the period 2016-2022. The State recognizes UUP as an exclusive representative for collective bargaining and negotiations regarding wages, wages, hours and other terms and conditions of employment for workers in positions at the State Professional Services Negotiating Unit. The union also negotiates agreements with the state on evaluation and promotion procedures, including the agreement between the university and the UUP on a system for evaluating and promoting professional agents.

And the more people get involved, the stronger the union will be » Overview Organized in the early 1970s, the union now represents more than 30,000 members across the state and is associated with the New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and, by these organizations, the American Federation of Labor/Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFT). All the Statewide UUP forms a large local local feared NYSUT, Local 2190. Although we have not accepted these delays, we understand that the state`s decision is motivated by the budgetary crisis that developed as a result of the COVID 19 pandemic. To address this crisis, it is essential that the federal government provide urgent assistance to national and local governments across the country, including New York. Given the current situation in Washington, it is fair to conclude that it is unlikely that aid will come from there before November 3. It is therefore more important than ever for the State of New York to adopt an « ultra-millionaire tax » and a « billionaire tax. » In addition, we will intensify our efforts to secure the adoption of the proposed reintroduction of the share tax. This option could generate more than $1 billion in the first month! More information on these efforts will follow. Membership in United University Professions is as simple as completing a membership application and either submitting a local UUP delegate or sending it.
