FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
UHPA and UH Administration Reach Tentative Agreement
UHPA Membership to Hold Ratification Vote
of Tentative Agreement
Electronic Voting Period: Jan. 21 – Jan. 26
In a special board meeting held today, the UHPA Board of Directors voted to seek approval of a tentative agreement with the UH administration through a ratification vote by its members. The tentative agreement between UHPA’s collective bargaining committee and the UH administration was reached this week.
The ratification vote will be open to all bargaining unit members and will be conducted electronically. The voting period is scheduled to begin on Thursday, January 21, at noon, and end on Tuesday, January 26, at 12:01 p.m.
As a courtesy to UHPA faculty members, terms of the tentative agreement will not be publicly disclosed to allow members to have the opportunity to review them first. UHPA bargaining unit members will be receiving information on the tentative agreement this weekend.
If it is ratified, the agreement would replace the existing contract now in effect.
