The University of Connecticut Chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), welcomes you as a new faculty/research member of UConn. The AAUP is a national professional organization and the UConn Chapter of the AAUP is certified as the exclusive collective bargaining representative for the University of Connecticut’s teaching, research and coaching staff. In addition to negotiating a series of commensurate compensation packages, the UConn-AAUP has a strong tradition of safeguarding the principles of shared governance within the University and promoting UConn’s unique role as the flagship research University at the State Capitol.
Connecticut State Statute requires all individuals, as designated by their work titles, to be represented by a bargaining agent for collective bargaining. However, you must give affirmative consent to become a member of UConn-AAUP. All members of UConn-AAUP pay dues in the amount of 0.009 (.9%) of their annual salary, which is then automatically deducted from your biweekly paycheck.
The current collective bargaining contract can be found here.
“I’m just getting back from vacation in Maine, and am so pleased to read the July 15th update – it’s beautifully articulated and shows how on top of the issues the union is- If any member had doubts about the importance of the union previously, they should be reassured that their dues are being well-spent. Thanks for all of your hard work!” Professor Kim Larrabee
