Eight months have passed since the UHPA sent contract proposals to the State of Hawaii and the UH Administration. After seven months of negotiations that began in late May 2008, the University of Hawaii Professional Assembly (UHPA), the union that represents 3900 faculty members, has declared an impasse in its bargaining efforts with the Governor, UH President and Board of Regents. UHPA’s current contract expires June 30, 2009.
