The NYS/UUP JLMC are comprised of five committees: Affirmative Action/Diversity (Article 10), Employment (Article 35), Professional Development (Article 42), Safety and Health (Article 43), Technology (Article 44) and Campus Grants (Article 45). The committees have established a total of 14 programs. Each committee is comprised of an equal number of members appointed by New York State (State) and UUP and each party designates a co-chair for each committee. In addition, each campus has established a Campus Professional Development Committee that administers the Individual Development Awards (IDA) Program for the specific campus at the local level. A Joint Labor-Management Executive Committee comprised of the director or designee of the Governor's Office of Employee Relations (GOER), the president or designee of UUP, and representatives of SUNY, determines the funding allocation for each program and oversees all of the committees, including reviewing their activities, resolving issues of mutual concern that are referred by the other committees, and providing overall policy direction.
The New York State/United University Professions Joint Labor-Management Committees address mutually identified issues affecting the quality and productivity of the State University of New York system.
For more than 30 years, New York State and United University Professions have worked together through the Joint Labor-Management Committees to build a series of successful partnerships within the State University of New York system.
The New York State/United University Professions Joint Labor-Management Committees are funded through the negotiated agreement between the State of New York and the United University Professions.
