Tentative Agreement Presentation, Monday June 26

Our statewide Negotiations Committee voted on June 21 to recommend the new Tentative Agreement to our members. You can find a summary of the most significant provisions of the TA in the latest Negotiations Bulletin here.

To help inform everyone of the new provisions included in this TA, Chief Negotiator Bret Benjamin and members of the Negotiations Team will be coming to our campus on Monday, June 26 at 11:30am to present the proposed contract and to answer questions from members about it.

There are two options for you to participate in this meeting:


In Lecture Center 100


Register here to receive a link see the presentation remotely. (We will take questions using the chat function for response by the Team.)

In case you cannot make this meeting, statewide will be organizing several Zoom presentations in addition to this New Paltz-specific meeting, so stay tuned for those as they are announced.

I look forward to seeing many of you (whether live or virtually) on Monday!!

In union,


Beth E Wilson

Negotiations Bulletin for February 2023

The UP Negotiations Team is hard at work, pushing against significant resistance by the State to three of our biggest demands: increased compensation, telecommuting, and better job security for our contingent members. We will be kicking off a campaign in April (details to come) to bring our members together here at New Paltz to add leverage to our demands at the statewide table. Stay tuned, and in the meantime, you can find the most recent Negotiations Bulletin here!
