UUP WORTHY WEDNESDAY – WEEKLY ADVOCACY ACTIONS, a weekly update on opportunities to join together and fight for causes that benefit our members, families, and the communities where we work and live. UNITED WE WIN!All the efforts of so many paid off! Nearly 4,000 people signed the petition, urging Governor Cuomo to include in-person higher education professional staff in the 1B category for vaccination and we did it! All in-person, essential staff at our colleges and universities will now also be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at any State or Local Health Department operated vaccine site effective immediately. Thank you for your advocacy and commitment to our efforts — and the work we are doing. WORTHY WEDNESDAY ACTIONS – Time to ACT!
