Greetings UUP Cortland members!
In response to the anticipated ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court case, Janus v. AFSCME, New York State has amended the Taylor Law which governs labor relations within the state.
These changes mandate that public employee unions will no longer be compelled to represent non-members in disciplinary cases, and that UUP is allowed to only offer members benefits that are above and beyond their negotiated benefits.
To ensure that all UUPers are aware of and eligible for these protections and benefits, all members are asked to complete and return the Updated Membership Form. This form can be found on the UUP website
https://uuphost.org/myuup/Membership/RegForm.php or by contacting the UUP Cortland chapter office for a copy.
To get your copy of the updated membership card, or if you have any questions, please contact our chapter office at x5991 or mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Joe Westbrook, UUP Chapter President
