He personally met with the UHPA legislative team along with Senate leadership to discuss the passage of labor bills introduced by UHPA. He has demonstrated a strong understanding of Chapter 89, the HLRB and the issues facing public unions due to the Janus case before the US Supreme Court. UHPA believes Senator English will serve the faculty well.
