UUP Membership entitles you to:
- Vote on collective bargaining agreement
- Hold union office
- Attend union meetings
- Elect union leaders on your campus and choose your representatives at the state and national levels
- Maintain UUP membership after retirement and be eligible for benefit programs
- Upon separation of service, obtain Associate Membership with NYSUT and be eligible for benefit programs
Check your pay stub to make sure you are a member. In order to be a member of the union, your paycheck must say “UUP Member.” If it says “UUP Agency Fee,” then you are included in the Professional Services Negotiating Unit, but are not a member of the union.
To become a member, request an application form from our Chapter Office or download the form online from the UUP website, www.uuoinfo.org. You may mail your membership form to Albany or send it to our Chapter Office (325 Crawford Hall) and we will mail it for you.
If you have questions, feel free to call the office.
