Who We Are
We are UCATS Local 3882, NYSUT, AFT, AFL-CIO, representing over 1500 clerical and technical workers at New York University. We negotiate a contract for all Code 106/116 and 104/114 workers. We organized our union in 1979 and have made tremendous gains in our contract and in the daily lives of the staff we represent.
What's In a Name?
You may have noticed the initials after our name, Local 3882. We are members of the New York State United Teachers representing 480,000 people who work in New York's schools, colleges, and healthcare facilities. NYSUT is a federation of more than 900 local unions, each representing its own members. We are also a member of the American Federation of Teachers, representing AFT 1.2 million members across the country as well as a member of the AFL-CIO, representing 14 million members across the country.
