The House Committee on Labor & Public Employment
Tuesday, March 17, 2015
10:00 a.m.

SB 1011, SD 1, Relating to Collective Bargaining.

Dear Chairperson Nakashima and Committee Members:

The University of Hawaii Professional Assembly (UHPA) strongly supports allowing impasse procedures found within H.R.S. Chapter 89 to be used in resolving disputes over EUTF contributions. The failure to allow impasse procedures to resolve these differences unduly impedes the negotiations process on salary and benefits that establish total employee compensation.

UHPA urges the committee to support this measure.

Respectively submitted,

Kristeen Hanselman
Associate Executive Director
