Looking for a way to be involved in Retiree Council 9 from the comfort of your home?   Do you have a couple of hours a month you could contribute?  Do you like working on the computer?

Then we have an opportunity for you!  Our website needs a couple of people to work on it a few hours a month.  It involves putting articles, photos, etc. on this webpage.  If a few people were interested, that would help to ensure all of our areas (JLCNR, FSNUR, CVCR, and SANR) are covered.

Please email if interested.


NYSUT Retirees in Retiree Council 9 (RC 9) will be busy this fall.  Make sure to read about the opportunities to gather and learn.  Please make sure to check registration deadlines.



Our Union Brothers and Sisters of UUP (United University Professionals) are in extended contract negotiations.   They are having rallies at the various campuses around the state.  It would be great if as fellow NYSUT members, we could join them and let them know they are not alone.

  • April 21 at SUNY Albany.  Information on Albany Rally
