Tenure and promotion datasets updated

UHPA Members can access tenure and promotion data that includes 2016 and 2017 academic years.  Members can access both graphs and the tables producing those graphs published within a Google sheet.

UHPA Executive Director Kristeen Hanselman said, “Each year UHPA gathers information on faculty success in obtaining tenure, increased compensation with promotion, and completion of probationary periods thru contract renewal. These indicate that UH continues to replenish some tenured faculty positions and faculty members are successful in their career path. ”

UHPA Board of Directors votes unanimously to continue offering the Term Life Insurance Benefit of $20,000

Effective January 1, 2018 the $20,000 Term Life Insurance Benefit will be transitioning from Royal State Insurance Company to Pacific Guardian Life (PGL),  ensuring no lapse or break in coverage for existing UHPA life insurance policyholders.  PGL is the largest domestic life and disability insurer in Hawai‘i, with the corporate offices located here in Honolulu, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Meiji Yasuda Life, one of the worldʻs largest life insurance companies.

As a union member covered under the PGL Life insurance policy, you will have access to a benefit not currently offered through Royal State Insurance Company.  Effective January 1, 2018, you will have access to a Medical & Travel Assistance Program provided through AXA Assistance USA, Inc.  The program offers a broad range of worldwide medical and travel assistance services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Signup details coming soon

We are currently working closely with PGL on the transition.  In January 2018, you will receive paperwork that will request your primary and contingent beneficiary information, along with optional supplemental life insurance coverage information.
