Committee’s Charge:

The Veterans Affairs Committee shall identify issues impacting UUP members who are veterans, inform veterans of their rights and other activities that will ensure the well-being and proper treatment of UUP members who are veterans.

The committee’s mission is to keep veterans informed of their rights with hiring protocol, support union members returning from the Middle East, and find out concerns and problems that are facing our veterans working in the SUNY system.

A current goal is to find out what campuses have union members serving in the Middle East and make sure they receive the support they need to return to work after coming back from conflict.
