Advertiser Staff

The University of Hawaii Professional Assembly’s board of directors has reached a tentative agreement with the University of Hawaii administration, the union said today.

The union has scheduled an electronic ratification vote that will begin Jan. 21 and last through Jan. 26, the union said in a press release.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. UHPA bargaining unit members will receive details this weekend, the union said.
University president M.R.C. Greenwood issued this statement in connection with the tentative agreement:
"I am pleased that we have reached a tentative settlement with the University of Hawaii Professional Assembly.
"Until UHPA briefs its members, no details of the tentative settlement will be shared."
She went on to thank federal mediator Carol Catanzariti and members of the negotiating teams for their part in reaching the tentative settlement.
