Waterford, NY – United University Professions President Fred Kowal led the union’s statewide leaders on Friday, marching in support of striking workers outside Momentive Performance Materials in Waterford.

The UUP leaders marched in support of IUE-CWA Local 81359 whose nearly 700 members have been on strike since November 2, after refusing to submit to the company’s demands for major reductions in health care and retirement benefits. UUP represents about 35,000 academic and professional faculty at SUNY’s state-operated campuses.
