What It Means To Be a NYSUT Member: It’s important to know that when you and your co-workers organize a union with NYSUT that in most cases you are forming your own brand-new union that is affiliated with NYSUT. NYSUT provides support, advocacy, and expert negotiation and legal assistance as needed, but ultimately it is you and your co-workers who will control the negotiations process and vote on a contract that suits your needs. This independent structure means that you control the process, but it also requires active participation from all union members to maintain a strong voice in the workplace and advocate for your needs and the needs of the students/clients/patients you serve.
