What is UUP?

The United University Professions (UUP) is the largest higher education union in the nation, representing over 35,000 academics and professionals in 800 job titles across the SUNY system and in SUNY administration. The University at Albany Chapter of UUP works with statewide UUP to improve working conditions on our campus, advocate for academics and professionals, and keep higher education affordable and accessible for students. A union's strength is in its members. We encourage all academics and professionals, part-time and full-time, contingent or tenure track to get involved in our chapter and affect positive change on the UAlbany campus and beyond. Join us at events, participate in committees, engage in community activism, share concerns and propose solutions.

Negotiations continue on UUP's overdue contract (for updates visit https://uuphost.org/myuup/MembersOnly/check.php.)

The Chapter seeks member signatures on a fair contract petition that will be given to administration mid-December. Over 200 signatures were obtained at the 11/16/17 rally (pictured.) Department reps have copies or members can sign and return the form to Aaron Major A&S 301, or aaronmajor@gmail.com by 12/12/17.

Fair Contract Rally

UUP statewide wants to hear from all academic contingents. Please take a minute to complete the survey and encourage your colleagues to do the same.
