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.

News/Upcoming Events

UUP wants to hear from U! UUP members had many conversations across our 3 campuses in fall, resulting in new members signing on and hearing great ideas and important information. Have concerns, or feedback to help make UAlbany better for all? Contact your department rep or your UUP: academic VP ([email protected]), professionals VP ([email protected]), or contingents VP ([email protected]). Chat with UUP during the Spring Blitz, April 2-4. Sign up here.

UUP’s Albany Chapter stands in solidarity with West Viriginia U’s academic workers and students who will be affected by the proposed cuts. Read the chapter’s resolution here.

Make a difference! Watch your emails, join in UUP’s solidarity actions and get to know your colleagues! Contact your chapter VP if questions (VP Academics-Marco Varisco , VP Professionals-Patrick Romain, VP Contingents-David Banks).

The new 2022-26 UUP contract was overwhelmingly ratified! Member participation in this ratification vote was greater than voter response for the previous four contracts. In fact, this is the highest total vote in recent UUP history. We take this to be a sign both of the important contractual gains achieved in this round, and of the increasing member engagement within UUP. Thanks to all for their input, participation and hard work! For contract details visit www.uupinfo.org and click About>Contract.
