Tentative Contract Briefing Sessions

Dear UUP Members,

UUP’s Negotiations Team will be at Binghamton University to present, explain, and answer questions about the new agreement, which state and union negotiators reached in June. The briefing is scheduled for July 20 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm in LH 14. This briefing is for UUP members only. Seating is limited in LH 14, so please register HERE as soon as possible.
UUP will also host state-wide virtual briefing sessions so that all members will have an opportunity to learn about the proposed agreement. Forums are set for July 18 (4 p.m. to 6 p.m.); July 19 (3 p.m. to 5 p.m.) and July 26 (noon to 2 p.m.).

UUP members can click HERE to register for the forums.

The tentative agreement includes across-the-board raises (2% in 2022, 3% for 2023 through 2025); on-base retention awards for full-time employees at seven and 12 years of service; per-course minimum payment increases for contingents (to $5,500 or $6,000 per three-credit course depending on campus designation); and living wage expenses to raise minimum salaries for UUP’s lowest-paid academics and professionals.

UUP members will vote electronically to ratify the agreement. Voting opens Aug. 10 and ends Aug. 24. Full details about the contract and ratification vote are available on UUP’s Members Only page, HERE.

In Solidarity,

Brendan McGovern
UUP President, Binghamton Chapter
