United University Professions (UUP) is the only organization designated to negotiate with New York State on behalf of SUNY’s academic and professional employees. The result is a contract outlining very specific rules and worker protections for employees under UUP’s bargaining unit.

“Union members earn better wages and benefits than workers who aren’t union members. On average, union workers’ wages are 27 percent higher than their nonunion counterparts.” – AFL-CIO

2022-2026 Contract

After a predetermined number of years, UUP’s contract with New York expires, and UUP must negotiate with the state for a new agreement.

On August 24, 2023, UUP members overwhelmingly approved the 2022-2026 contract.

Where can I find a copy of the UUP contract?

The 2022-2026 contract between the State of New York and UUP is available on the statewide UUP website at the link above.

I have questions about the contract. Who can I talk to?
