OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR — Governor Ige’s statement on Supreme Court ruling against public employee unions

Posted on Jun 27, 2018 in Latest Department News, Office of the Governor Press Releases

“I’m disappointed with the Supreme Court’s decision to overrule a case that for 41 years allowed states to negotiate labor contracts that protected workers’ rights and led to the efficient delivery of government services. Fortunately, Hawaiʻi’s Constitution affords strong protections for workers compared to other states. I hope Hawaiʻi’s workers see the value of union representation and continue to voluntarily support the work of the unions.”

–Governor David Y. Ige
