HB 1619, Relating to Collective Bargaining

The House Committee on Higher Education

Tuesday, February 2, 2016

2:00 p.m.

RE: HB1619, Relating to Collective Bargaining

Attention:    Chair Isaac Choy, Vice Chair Linda Ichiyama and Members of the Committee

The University of Hawaii Professional Assembly (UHPA) strongly urges the committee to oppose HB1619 that would deny the right of a select group to have a voice in the workplace, receive protections of health and safety, job training and other work-related issues guaranteed by union membership.

This Bill penalizes a select group of unionized workers.  Their Constitutional protections should not be denied.

UHPA opposes HB1619.

Respectfully submitted,
