AN INTRODUCTION TO UUP
What is UUP?
The initials UUP stand for “United University Professions” (not “Professors”).
United University Professions is the state-wide union that was formed in 1973 to represent the faculty, librarians, and professional employees of the State University of New York in their employer/employee relations with the state of New York.
UUP at regular intervals, negotiates a contract with the state which outlines the terms and conditions of employment during the duration of the contract.
Currently, UUP and the state are in the third year of a five-year contract that will expire on July 1, 2016.
Sometime before this date, early next year, UUP and the state will begin to negotiate a new contract. Contract negotiations are usually long and complicated, and they sometimes are not concluded by the time an old contract expires. In this case, SUNY/UUP employees continue to work under, and are protected by, the terms of the expired contract until a new contract is negotiated.
