What is UUP?

The United University Professions (UUP) is the largest higher education union in the nation, representing over 37,000 academics and professionals in 500 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 with the State’s Office of Employee Relations started 5/27/22 when the Negotiations Team presented our package of conceptual proposals developed by the Team, based on extensive member input and approval of the UUP Negotiations Committee. These proposals outline a targeted but ambitious bargaining agenda that attempts to address the varied needs of our diverse bargaining unit. The proposals and our next Negotiations Bulletin are posted in "Members Only" on the UUP website to ensure that we are communicating directly and exclusively with our membership. The Members Only Portal has undergone a change to the sign-in process, now requiring a password. Click here to complete the one-time account creation and set up your password.
