Settlement Agreement Referenced
After a two-year grievance process, an arbitrator has found that the UH administration violated the collective bargaining agreement and state labor laws when it denied a faculty member’s promotion based on the member’s union activities. The arbitrator found that the anti-union language used in the negative promotion recommendations warranted removal from the faculty member’s dossier. The arbitrator ordered that once the dossier is rid of the discriminatory taint, it will be sent to the UH Board of Regents to decide on promotion and back pay remedies.
Article lIB of the Agreement between the UHPA and the BOR states that the UH-Employer may not discriminate against any union member on the basis of his or her union activity or lack thereof.
