All UUP members are invited to attend an important meeting in the Weiskotten 2nd floor Lecture Hall, room 2231, at Noon on March 1st. Jamie Dangler, our State UUP VP for Academics, will be here to discuss several important topics. She will discuss the current contract situation and challenges UUP is facing negotiating. She will also discuss the important Janus case that is being heard by the US Supreme Court on Monday in Washington, which is a union-busting case. Jamie will also answer any questions you may have at that time. Jamie is past chapter President of the Cortland UUP chapter. She was also the Chief Negotiator of our last contract that expired on July 1, 2016.
We will also hold a chapter budget vote and a contract rally in the meeting. Rallies are being held on all SUNY UUP campuses around the state that day to show unified support for a fair contract to the Chancellor. We are being told that the Chancellor is the one holding back on fair negotiations. The theme for the Rally is RESPECT!
A box lunch and beverage will be provided. Please RSVP to the Upstate UUP office by phone: 315-422-5028 or by email to: Syracuse@UUPMail.org so we may have a proper count to order enough lunches. Sorry for short notice, but we need to hear from you ASAP if you plan to attend.
Carl Pettengill, President
UUP Upstate Chapter
