UHPA presented a counter proposal to the administration.
HGEA members are being asked to ratify one contract change of two year duration with the contract expiring 6/30/2011. The furloughs will constitute 18 and 24 days over the next two fiscal years. Each agency or employer has a separate memorandum of understanding to implement the days. For UH HGEA employees there will be a 5% salary cut.
There will be no increase in the employer contribution to EUTF premiums. Employees will pay all rate increases. HGEA, UHPA, and UPW will be pursuing an aggressive legislative strategy to confront the EUTF funding problem.
Layoff language will remain the same as contained in the expired contract.
