STAND. COM. REP. NO.2624
RE: S.B. No. 2114
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred S.B. No. 2114, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO COLLECTIVE BARGAINING,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to allow family leave benefits, greater than the four weeks already authorized in statute, to be negotiated for employees subject to collective bargaining.
Your Committee finds that this measure will enable employers and employees to negotiate more aspects of the employees' terms of employment, in keeping with the intent of Act 253, Session Laws of Hawaii 2000, otherwise known as the Civil Service Modernization Act.
Your Committee has amended the measure by making technical, nonsubstantive changes for purposes of consistency and clarity.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2114, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2114, S.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
BRIAN T. TANIGUCHI, Chair
