Some staff have received letters from HR and their supervisors stating that the changes in the FLSA have affected them. Pete Ludden, our NYSUT Labor Relations Specialist, is trained on this subject and will be presenting two informational seminars on this for interested UUP members.
Here’s a link to a few of the Google Photo Gallery of the 2016 UUP Clambake.

Dear UUP Members:
We are committed to communicating with the membership about contract negotiations–to the greatest extent possible–as negotiations proceed. This is your contract, and we want members to be informed, involved, and active throughout the process.
To facilitate this communication, we have created a new Members-Only web portal. Here is the link to the portal: https://uuphost.org/myuup/MembersOnly/check.php. A link to the portal is also accessible via the UUP website; click on the “UUP Negotiations Information” box in the top right corner of the page.
Conceptual proposals from UUP and the state, exchanged July 15 during our first bargaining session with the State, are now posted in the new Members-Only section.
The Members-Only section is password-protected; use the last five digits of your employee ID as your unique password to enter the site. Your employee ID can be found in the center of your pay stub, listed as “NYS EMPLID”.
Please do not publicly share or post information found in the Members-Only section; this information is confidential and intended for UUP members only.
