1) On February 10, 2016, the Executive Board of the UUP Binghamton Chapter passed the following motion:
MOVED that Binghamton University UUP strongly supports the workers of SODEXO as they negotiate a new contract. MOTION PASSED WITHOUT DISSENT.
This motion was passed because hundreds of Sodexho workers on campus, represented by United Professional & Service Employees Union (UPSEU) Local 1222 are in negotiations with Sodexho for a new and fair multi-year contract. The workers are currently working without a contract. We at Binghamton UUP very much urge Sodexho to negotiate in good faith with the workers and to come to a fair agreement for these vital members of the Binghamton University community
2) On December 14, 2015, after an email vote, the Executive Board of the UUP Binghamton Chapter passed the following motion via an email vote of 9 in favor and 1 opposed:
The Binghamton Chapter of UUP fully supports the adminstration’s plan to raise graduate student stipends and stands in solidarity with graduate students already at Binghamton University who are asking for equal pay for equal work. We urge the administration to negotiate in good faith with the graduate students’ representatives so that fairness in compensation for graduate student work is maintained.
