Everything that happens at SUNY and therefore on the Stony Brook campus is decided by the NYS legislators and the governor. Your involvement in the political process influences our elected officials. Make your voice heard. Consider joining UUP’s ADVOCACY efforts.
Are you interested in making a difference? Join a small group of UUPers and visit your NYS Legislator either in Albany or at the his/her local Long Island Office.
Join a small group of UUPers going to ALBANY on JUNE 6, 2017 to speak with our NYS legislators to remind them the importance of DSH payments to our SUNY Hospitals. To get involved contact the SB HSC Chapter Office at 631 444-1505 for more details.
It is imperative that we continually remind our state leaders the importance of directing NYS tax-dollars to SUNY, to support our SUNY campuses, our 4 SUNY HSCs, our 3 SUNY hospitals and our LI State Vets Home. CONSIDER donating to VOTE/COPE our political action fund. As little as a dollar a paycheck ($26 annually) will ensure that we have the funds we need to advocate on behalf of our patients, our students, our communities, and our members.

What do you know about the possibility of aNY State CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION?
