We have been working hard over the past year to build better relationships with the other campus unions. United University Professions (the union for faculty and professional staff) have spearheaded that effort and they’ve invited us to participate in their committees to make our efforts twice as useful because we’re pooling resources + knowledge.
Committees Are, for now (bold has been filled):
Women’s: Focuses on gender equity issues within the university, will be doing research into SUNY Albany’s practices and history on issues like hiring, promotion, tenure, etc.
Contingent Concerns: Mobilizes and seeks to address concerns for contingent faculty & staff (adjuncts, part-timers, etc.) Example of some work from SUNY New Paltz.
Health & Safety: Identifies and seeks to address health & safety concerns on the job. Ex. Request university restrict smoking spaces to ensure cigarette smoke isn’t vented into buildings/classrooms
