Statement from UUP President Frederick E. Kowal on the re-election of NYSUT President Andrew Pallotta

“NYSUT President Andrew Pallotta is a tough, no-nonsense leader of NYSUT’s 600,000 members, who all know he has their back. As president of United University Professions, I’ve found that Andy’s fearless approach to public education has been a tremendous help with numerous initiatives that UUP has undertaken to protect and defend our members on the job.

“Andy has been there for our members at SUNY’s public hospitals on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, donating thousands of protective medical masks. Andy’s vision of public education puts members first, because if they don’t have the protections they need, neither do their students. I look forward to working with him and all of NYSUT’s statewide leaders to make sure his vision reaches throughout the state.”

UUP is the nation's largest higher education union, with more than 42,000 academic and professional faculty and retirees. UUP members work at 29 New York state-operated campuses, including SUNY’s public teaching hospitals and health science centers in Brooklyn, Long Island and Syracuse. It is an affiliate of NYSUT, the American Federation of Teachers, the National Education Association, and the AFL-CIO.
