The Senate Committee on Ways and Means
Thursday, March 5, 2015
1:30 p.m.

SB 1011, SD1, Relating to Collective Bargaining.

Dear Chairperson Tokuda and Committee Members:

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
