Family Leave and Work-Life Services Guide

The new UUP Family Leave and Work-Life Services Guide is posted on the UUP website.

UUP’s new 2022-26 contract with NYS contains new family leave provisions, providing members with many options for fully paid, partially paid, and unpaid leave for family care. It covers leave for birth, adoption, foster care placement, sick relative care (including elders), the death of family members, and assisting family members on active military duty.

The Guide also includes information about the following:

  • “tenure” clock stop provisions for Professionals and Academics;
  • NYS Work-Life Services programs negotiated by UUP;
  • Possibilities for flexible work arrangements;
  • Support services and member benefits programs provided by UUP and our affiliates (New York State United Teachers, American Federation of Teachers, National Education Association).
