Attention: Chair Sylvia Luke, Vice Chair Ty Cullen and Members of the Committee
The University of Hawaii Professional Assembly (UHPA) urges the committee to support passage of HB 810, HD1.
Chapter 89-9, Hawaii Revised Statutes, outlines the scope of negotiations and consultation and Chapter 89-11, Hawaii Revised Statutes, outlines the resolution of disputes and impasse procedures between the exclusive representative and the employer. The amendments to these respective sections outlined in HB 810 HD1 will provide the appropriate pathway for resolving disputes between the exclusive representative and the employer regarding contributions to the Hawaii Employer-Union Health Benefits Trust Fund (EUTF).
UHPA urges the committee to support HB 810, HD1.
