UH professors begin contract ratification vote

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) — Professors at the University of Hawaii have begun voting on a new contract.

It includes a 6.7 percent pay cut until July 2011. The pact also calls for three lump-sum payments, starting in August 2012, to reimburse professors for the lost money. In addition, professors would receive a 3 percent pay raise in 2013 and 2014.

The online ratification vote by members of the University of Hawaii Professional Assembly began Thursday and is set to end Tuesday. The union represent about 3,600 faculty members who teach at the UH system's 10 campuses.

The university unilaterally imposed the pay cut this month.

Gov. Linda Lingle ordered cuts to university funding over the last year to help close the state's budget gap.
