Dear Buffalo Center and Buffalo HSC UUP Members,


As we negotiate our new UUP contract with New York State, it is essential that union members are up to date on what's happening at the table and that we are all involved in the process of fighting for the strongest possible contract. Our most recent Negotiations Bulletin has now been posted on the UUP Members Only webpage, and we invite all UUP members to educate ourselves and our colleagues about the key issues that are being bargained in this round.


This bulletin provides an overview of the proposals presented so far by the State and UUP on Health Benefits, Leaves, Job Security, Telecommuting, Grievance and Disciplinary procedures among others. It also looks ahead to forthcoming proposals on compensation, and outlines ways that members can get involved in organizing for the best possible agreement. 


As our contract negotiations progress in the weeks and months ahead, we'll continue to update you with more Negotiations Bulletins and related materials. In the meantime, if you have any suggestions, concerns, or questions, you can reach our negotiations team by email at


As you may know, the Members Only section of UUP’s website allows members to access key information about our ongoing contract negotiations, benefits, union governance, and more. To log in to Members Only, you must enter your member ID number (which can be found on your UUP membership card, or by calling 518-640-6624). You will also need your Department ID for your campus; if you work at Buffalo Center or Buffalo HSC, your Department ID is either 28080 or 28030.


We hope this helps you access Members Only.
