Lenny was perusing a Star-Advertiser article published on March 13th, 2015 titled “Panel trims $72M from UH Budget,” where he was suprised to read President Lassner quoted as saying the $72 million cut made by the House Finance Committee could “hurt operations.” Now he’s a bit worried about his raise. How will this affect implementation of the 2015-2017 contract?


Don’t believe the hype. The additional cost of the collective bargaining settlement is part of the Executive Budget, and therefore remains unaffected by this cut in the Board of Regents’ proposed UH budget. Lenny can go ahead and plan that trip to Borneo next year during Spring Break.
