UUP Upstate Chapter Secretary (Elected)
September 15, 2015
As we enter our last year of the current contract, we are heading into another round of contract negotiations. This can be a long and drawn out process, sometimes taking several years. A team of very competent individuals has been assembled to take on the charge of writing our next contract.
UUP is the exclusive bargaining unit between the New York State Executive Branch (Governor’s Office) and those serving as New York State public employees with a 26P job title.
Some of you who have never been union before may not be aware that this is precisely where your 1% of your salary goes. It goes to pay for the ability for the union to conduct daily business, listen to members’ concerns, enforce the agreement between NYS and UUP, and ultimately bring these concerns to the negotiations table at time of the contract renewal.
