UPSEU is committed to being the preeminent organization representing public sector employees by providing professional, on-site representation, superior negotiations, and adherence to democratic principles which maintain the integrity of the union for the benefit of our members and their families.
The NY Appellate Division Third Department reversed its own prior ruling of November 25,2015 holding that NYSHIP's policy memorandum concerning negotiated buyout benefits for health coverage is null and void. This is a significant victory by NYSUT.
While the state could appeal the Appellate Court decision to the Court of Appeals Second Curcuit, the court has not generally accepted cases on appeal from the Appellate Courts where a unanimous decision is reached at the Appellate level.(which was the case in this matter)
We are hopeful that this matter can be put to bed, allowing employees waiving coverage with other NYSHIP coverage, to receive the appropriate waiver payment.
We will keep you apprised of the developments.

Save Hackensack Sanitation
The City Council has announced that it intends to privatize the Hackensack Sanitation Department. They want to outsource jobs. Your neighbors and employees that have served the City of Hackensack for years will be put on the street. They claim they will save you money but this is a half-baked plan that will cost more than it saves and your services will suffer.
The Anne Marie Paraeducator of the Year Program recognizes the important role of the paraeducator in supporting student achievement. The award is named in honor of Anne Marie Murphy, a paraeducator who was killed in the Sandy Hook tragedy. UPSEU member and Unit President Deborah Stevens from Strong Elementary School has been named Southington's 2017 Anne Marie Murphy Paraeducator of the Year.
Each district submits the name of their paraeducator of the year honoree to the State of Connecticut. The State then names the State's 2017 Anne Marie Murphy Paraeducator of the Year at a ceremony held on October 13, 2016.
