UUP’s 2016-2022 contract with New York state contains new family leave provisions, providing members with many options for fully paid, partially paid, and unpaid leave for family care. It covers leave for birth, adoption, foster care placement, sick relative care (including elders), the death of family members, and assisting family members on active military duty.
The next book we have chosen for the UUP Labor Reading Group is The One Percent Solution by Gordon Lafer. A short synopsis of the book from the publisher can be found in the March edition of the Beacon.. A date has not yet been selected to meet and discuss. All are welcome, just e-mail Alissa Karl to be included in the scheduling (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Brockport chapter of UUP will be hosted a NARCAN training for all UUP members on February 14th. We had a great turnout and had lots of positive feedback as to the usefulness of the training. If you missed this training but would like to host one for your department, please email Skip Zimmerman at, Skip.email@example.com , there need to be a minimum of 25 attendees for him to come so consider teaming up with other departments or inviting your students.
