New UUP ad campaign urges Albany to invest in SUNY hospitals

On behalf of our 3,000 members, welcome to the SUNY Downstate
Medical Center Chapter of United University Professions (UUP).

We hope that you find your association with our UUP chapter personally
satisfying and professionally rewarding.

United University Professions is charged with the responsibility of negotiating

all of your benefits. Some of these benefits are administered by the campus
administration and some are administered by UUP.

The Downstate Medical Center Chapter is very active. We’ve
successfully advocated for additional resources for our institution
on an annual basis. UUP’s effectiveness depends on the participation
of all of its members. As a member, you are qualified to vote for the
ratification of contracts as well as elections for UUP’s officers.
Since UUP represents the faculty and professional staff at 32 SUNY
campuses and only three of them include a hospital, it’s important
that we at the Downstate Medical Center Chapter maximize our participation.

I encourage you to join UUP. If you have not signed a UUP membership card,
I encourage you to do so. You may also complete the membership application
online on UUP’s website Here.

For more information, please contact the chapter office at
(718) 270-1519, the UUP administrative office at (800) 342-4206,
or the UUP website at uupinfo.org. I can be reached via email at
