The Supreme Court tsunami that might take your rights away – A UHPA Gathering is Coming to Your Campus

If you care about salary raises, tenure, and defending faculty rights, your participation in this UHPA interactive session is vital. See campus-specific dates and times listed at the bottom and also check your email for meeting reminders. Please make time for this.

Why should you attend: To defend the employee rights you have fought so hard for.

The “Janus” case is currently being heard by the Supreme Court and most agree that its outcome will almost certainly be an unprecedented attack on your employee rights. UHPA is working to prepare all members for its impact and to prevail after it strikes.

What will you learn:

  • What is Janus and specifically how is that pending decision threatening public employees?
  • How will Janus affect our ability to defend our employee rights?
  • Discuss the results of your campus survey.

Why you should not miss this

Within a year, Janus will have been decided. Like any tsunami, those that are well-prepared for it will have the best chance for survival. If your rights as an employee matter to you, do not miss this event.

UHPA Supports Ka‘āina Hull for the ERS Board

Retirement benefits offered through the Hawaii Employee Retirement System (ERS) continue to be a vital component of our overall benefits package.  Over the past five years, the ERS Board of Trustees have been empowered to make more decisions that could impact the viability and sustainability of our retirement system.  Current discussions taking place at the ERS Board could impact the retirement benefits of current members.
The upcoming ERS Board election is an opportunity to select an individual that will be able to protect faculty interests and help ensure a sustainable system in the future.  UHPA was contacted by one of the three candidates running for the ERS Board, HGEA Member Ka‘āina Hull.  In our meeting with Ka’āina, he demonstrated that he is a committed advocate for faculty and all public employeesʻ to fulfill the commitment of pension benefits for current and future retirees.

We appreciate your consideration of Ka’āina Hull for the ERS Board of Trustees.  Ballots need to be postmarked no later than November 6, 2017.

*Please note that there was an error on the ballot return envelops that indicates a post mark date of October 21, 2015.  The correct date is November 6, 2017.
