The Hawaii Labor Relations Board declared an impasse for Unit 8 as deadlines passed with no tentative agreements reached between your negotiating team and the employer. In accordance with Hawaii Revised Statutes, Chapter 89, an automatic impasse was declared when no tentative agreement was reached by Jan. 31, 2015.
As you may recall, last month HGEA filed for an impasse for Units 2, 3, 4, 9, and 14.
HGEA is hopeful that new contracts will be agreed upon in time for proper funding to be allocated during the current legislative session.
We will provide you with updates through ebulletin as the process continues.
