Article 38 - Parking
§38.1 UUP recognizes that the State may modify existing parking facilities for purposes including, but not limited to, construction of new buildings, roadways or other improvements. In the event that existing parking is impacted by such modifications, the State and UUP shall meet to consider alternatives for such parking. Such consideration shall include the issues of transportation to and from parking areas and parking for the handicapped.
§38.2 The parking fee structure for the parking lot adjoining SUNY Plaza in Albany shall be governed by the Memorandum of Understanding between the State and UUP dated June 21, 1988, concerning parking fees for employees who park in employee parking facilities operated in and around Albany by the Office of General Services, Bureau of Parking Services.
§38.3 The status quo will be maintained for parking facilities presently provided without charge and no existing charge for parking facilities shall be increased or decreased without negotiations pursuant to this Article. The State and UUP, upon the demand by either party, shall reopen negotiations concerning parking fees for employees in the unit, in any parking facility not covered by the aforementioned Memorandum of Understanding. Such negotiations shall be held at the appropriate level. The President of UUP and the Director of the Governor's Office of Employee Relations shall be notified prior to commencement of negotiations and either party shall have the option of participating in the negotiations. Disputes arising from such negotiations shall be submitted to binding arbitration through procedures developed by the parties.
