Process at a glance
The 2007-2011 Agreement Between the State of New York and United University Professions expired July 1, 2011.The first phase of UUP's extensive preparations to negotiate a successor contract was a needs assessment and information gathering process that took place during the Fall 2010 semester. The second phase, identification of contract priorities based on member input, took place in January 2011. The third phase, development of contract proposals to be presented to the state, occurred during the Spring 2011 semester. The Negotiations Committee formally approved UUP's contract proposals on April 29, 2011. The Negotiations Team is meeting regularly to prepare for contract talks.
Information about this process and other matters related to contract negotiations will be posted on this site as it develops. For further information contact Jamie Dangler (firstname.lastname@example.org).
