Who does UUP represent?

United University Professions, UUP, is the nation’s largest higher education union, representing the faculty and professional staff of the SUNY system (referred to as professional faculty in the contract). This encompasses the 29 comprehensive, technical, specialized and university centers of SUNY. The 29 campuses are broken into 32 chapters. These chapters include the campuses shown above, as well as separate chapters for Buffalo Health Science Center, Stony Brook Health Science Center and System Administration.

UUP is Local 2190 of the statewide union, New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) and national union, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT).

The Oneonta Chapter of UUP represents over 700 employees and 149 retirees.  Members are involved in many college and volunteer community activities. 

United University Professions is the largest higher education union in the U.S. When it was formed in 1973, UUP represented 3,500 members. The union has grown in numbers and in influence since then; UUP represents more than 42,000 members on 29 state-operated SUNY campuses and System Administration.

Throughout its history, UUP has acted in the best interests of its members, and those efforts have benefited thousands of UUP members, the SUNY community and the entire state of New York.  UUP would not be what it is today without the commitment and enthusiasm of its leaders and members who spur the union toward greater achievements.

With some 526 job titles included in the bargaining unit, UUP reflects the diversity of SUNY. Members include: academic faculty, student affairs personnel, librarians, public relations personnel, doctors, dentists, nurses, graphic artists, student recruitment professionals, Educational Opportunity Center instructors, financial aid counselors, system administration staff, student resident hall personnel and admissions counselors.

UUP represents SUNY faculty and other professionals at the bargaining table and works to protect their interests by achieving improvements in salary, fringe benefits, working conditions and retirement programs, providing funding for professional growth and development through leaves, awards, conferences and other grant programs, obtaining state resources for the State University through effective legislative and political action and seeking to enhance and preserve the quality of the University.

As the largest higher education union in the nation, UUP is also a source for information on labor unions, state work force and bargaining issues, higher education reform, college faculty concerns and a variety of higher education issues.
