Contract Updates

 2016 – 2022 State/UUP Agreement COMPENSATION

Pay increases in new UUP contract start Oct. 31, 2018!

 

Eligible UUP members will see a $600 lump-sum payment in their Oct. 31 paychecks.

Salary increases and retroactive pay due to members as part of UUP’s new contract are set to be paid starting Nov. 28.

The lump-sum payment, salary increases and retroactive pay were collectively bargained by UUP in its new six-year agreement with the state. The contract was overwhelmingly approved by members Sept. 5; nearly 98 percent of members who voted cast ballots in favor of the pact.

“From providing cutting-edge health care services and making groundbreaking research to making SUNY a world-class university system, our members are dedicated to SUNY and the students and patients that they serve,” said UUP President Fred Kowal. “We are proud to deliver these well-deserved increases and benefits to our members, collectively bargained by UUP in our new six-year contract with the state.”

Eligible employees will see base salary increases, retroactive cash, and lump-sum payments/awards in their paychecks beginning Oct. 31.
