How to Apply for NYS/UUP JLMC Funds

The NYS/UUP Joint Labor-Management Committees (NYS/UUP JLMC) provide funding to UUP represented employees in the Professional Services Negotiating Unit.

The NYS/UUP JLMC programs support professional development, promote staff development and leadership skills, enhance employment opportunities and promote diversity by assisting employees to prepare for permanent or continuing appointments with preferences given to minorities, women, persons with disabilities or employees with military status, refine safety and health skills, assist employees who have been notified of being retrenched, are perceived to be at high risk of retrenchment, or who need retraining because of changing campus needs and provide support to initiatives that enhance the creative use of technology.

The following provides the process for applying for JLMC funding.

Select a Program

Programs are listed under each committee in the Committees section.

Fill out and print the application for the program to which you are applying.

Review the General Program Information

The General Program Information provides information that applies to all programs, including application follow-up, expenditure limitations, reimbursement of expenditures, acknowledgement of committee funds, equipment policy, and contacts.

Application Process

Review the Application Instructions.

Fill out and print the application and attach required attachments that are listed in the program guidelines for the program to which you are applying.

Obtain the required signatures of the campus president or designee, and the UUP chapter president for all applications except for:

  • Individual Development Awards Program
  • Retraining Fellowship Program for employees who are no longer associated with a campus.

For all programs except the Individual Development Awards, send the application with the required attachments to the NYS/UUP JLMC staff.

For Individual Development Awards Program applications ONLY:

  • Send applications to your Campus Professional Development Committee. DO NOT send Individual Development Awards Program applications to the NYS/UUP JLMC staff.

The NYS/UUP JLMC staff will send the applicant an acknowledgement of receipt of the application and check the application for completeness, including required attachments. Be advised that an application with incomplete or missing information will not be considered.

A complete application and related documents will be sent to the appropriate committee for consideration.

The applicant will be notified within approximately 30-45 days of the committee’s decision.

Program Evaluation

A Program Evaluation must be submitted to the NYS/UUP JLMC staff within 30 days of the completion of the project or activity, except for the Individual Development Awards Program.

  • A determination to submit a Program Evaluation for the Individual Development Awards Program is made by each Campus Professional Development Committee.

If the Program Evaluation is not submitted as required, action on subsequent applications for NYS/UUP JLMC funds may be postponed until the Program Evaluation is received.
