"The grievance filed today by UHPA was not unexpected.  We disagree with the allegation of a "wholesale breach of contract."  The substance of the grievance is being reviewed by counsel and we will reply to UHPA by tomorrow afternoon.  Our preference remains to reach a negotiated settlement, but such a settlement must address the University's significant budget shortfalls this year and next."
