CORRECTION TO THE BOARD NOTES

MID-YEAR NEGOTIATIONS 

UHPA Executive Director and Chief Negotiator J. N. Musto informed Directors that although the UH administrators seemed receptive to salary proposals the State Office of Budget and Finance were against any increase in financial liabilities.  With regards to cost items, they are waiting to see what happens in this legislative session.  The next reopener will be in 2013.  He pointed out that the UH may be facing an uncertain and difficult future. 

On July 1, 2011, faculty will get their salaries back in 25%, 25% & then 50% increments.  Directors were informed that faculty would be better off to wait out the contract to retire so that it would count towards their 36 months (high threes).  Additionally, faculty planning to retire should not retire on June 30 but they should wait to retire until September 1st or later

Correction:

Faculty members whose salaries were temporarily reduced by 6.667% effective January 1, 2010 will have their salaries restored by 6.667%.  Faculty members on 11-month appointments will see the 6.667% salary increase in the paycheck they receive on July 20, 2011.  Faculty members on 9-month appointments will see the 6.667% salary increase in the paycheck they receive on August 18, 2011.  (Note:  the salary for 9-month appointments is earned for the duty period between August and May of the academic year, but paid out over 12 months.  Those on 11-month appointments are paid for a duty period beginning July 1st, through June 30th. )  The readjusted salaries are permanent.

On July 1, 2013, all Faculty Members shall have their base salaries increased by three percent (3%.)

On July 1, 2014, all Faculty Members shall have their base salaries increased by three percent (3%.)

The 2009-2015 Agreement between UHPA and the BOR also provides that the actual amount of the temporary 6.667% salary reduction, not just the rate of pay, will be restored to continuing faculty members.  The amount of salary withheld between January 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011 will be returned to faculty members in a series of lump sum payments, beginning with 25% on August 1, 2012, followed by an additional 25% on August 1, 2013, and a final lump sum payment of 50% on August 1, 2014.  Faculty members, who retire at any time prior to receiving a full repayment of the amount of salary withheld, will receive a lump sum payment of entire balance at the time of retirement.

 

 

Employees’ Benefits Fair

The deferred compensation plan is available to employees eligible for the Employees’ Retirement System (ERS), including employees of the University of Hawai‘i.  The Island Savings Plan is a voluntary supplemental retirement savings plan (similar to the 403(b)) authorized under section 457 of the Internal Revenue Code and the Hawai‘i Revised Statues (HRS) chapter 88E.  The Island Savings Plan is intended to help employees save for retirement using pre-tax contributions and tax-deferred growth.

The Employees’ Benefits Fair is a great opportunity for employees to learn more about the Island Savings Plan supplemental retirement benefits program and other employee benefits.  The Island Savings Plan consultants and investment fund provider representatives will be available to explain the investment options and answer questions.  In addition, representatives from the ERS, Island Flex (Flexible Spending Account Plan), HI529 College Savings Plan, the Employer-Union Health Benefits Trust Fund (EUTF), and the various health plan carriers will be in attendance.  Employees may also attend educational workshops conducted by representatives of the Island Savings Plan.

The Employees’ Benefits Fair is held a couple of times a year at various locations and islands.  An upcoming Employee’s Benefits Fair is scheduled for October on the island of Hawai‘i.
