For more than 30 years, NYS and UUP have worked together through the Joint Labor-Management Committees to build a series of successful partnerships within public higher education.

The New York State/United University Professions Joint Labor-Management Committees (JLMC) address mutually identified issues affecting the quality and productivity of the State University of New York (SUNY) system.


The NYS/UUP Joint Labor-Management Committees are offering three workshops for UUP-represented employees.

Below are the current PILOT workshop offerings.

Managing Change with Skill and Finesse

This workshop offers an interactive approach to understanding and managing change in the workplace. Participants are encouraged to examine their own attitudes about change while receiving the tools to guide others through change.

Enhance Your Supervisory Skills

This workshop aims to provide an overview of the skills needed for successful supervision. Participants will examine leadership styles and plan ways to improve their specific skills and behaviors. Topics will include motivating employees, time management techniques, effective communication, impact of communication on the work environment, and strategies to deal with challenging workplace behaviors.

Respectful Communication and Conflict Resolution

This workshop moves beyond communication "basics" and examines how what we say can affect those around us. Participants are encouraged to identify their role in contributing to respect, tension or problems in the workplace. Techniques for making sure we understand what someone has said, caring about the way we come across and showing people we value their ideas are shared. This course also addresses ways to resolve conflict while improving relationships.
