Revisions to Board of Regents’ Policies

At the initiation of Board of Regents’ Chair Howard Karr, an extensive and complete revision of the Board of Regents’ Policies (BORP) has been drafted and submitted for review and comment. The faculty senate chairs and administrators, as well as UHPA, were sent copies of the draft document. The proposals can be found at https://www.hawaii.edu/borpolicies/pdf/. UHPA has carefully reviewed the proposed changes and a response was sent to the BOR. Although the BOR and President Greenwood have characterized the changes as ministerial and “streamlining,” the draft contains a substantive shift in authority over major policy issues away from the Regents to the University President. This has been a policy effort begun by the prior two UH presidents in an effort to remove the Regents from “micro-managing” the institution. However, there are also contract implications in changing some of the policies and shifting others to Executive Policies that may not have yet been promulgated. This is pointed out in the UHPA response. (Click on title for more information.)

You can make your voice heard by signing a petition supporting public employees, including faculty, in Wisconsin. Wisconsin may be in the forefront but Ohio is right behind with Republican governors and legislators seeking to repeal collective bargaining for state employees. Many Wisconsin faculty are covered by collective bargaining agreements that will be canceled if the Governor of Wisconsin is successful in repealing collective bargaining.

UHPA Wins Unprecedented Case Involving Discrimination Against UH Faculty Member for Involvement in Union Activity

An arbitrator recently determined UH administrators clearly discriminated against faculty member Vickery Lebbin, a librarian with Hamilton Library at UH-Manoa, by denying her a promotion for being involved with union activity. She was the only applicant out of 114 who did not receive a promotion in 2009. Retired Judge Victoria S. Marks, who served as the arbitrator, determined that discrimination had occurred in the Tenure and Promotion process.
