RE: H.B. No. 2114
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Twenty-Ninth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2018
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred H.B. No. 2114, H.D. 2, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO COLLECTIVE BARGAINING,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to amend the law regarding collective bargaining in public employment.
Specifically, this measure provides that the implementation of management decisions affecting the terms and conditions of employment that are subject to collective bargaining is not precluded from collective bargaining negotiations.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Hawaii Government Employees Association; AFL-CIO; United Public Workers; Hawaii State Teachers Association; University of Hawaii Professional Assembly; Hawaii Fire Fighters Association, Local 1463; and IMUAlliance.
Your Committee received written comments in opposition to this measure from the Department of the Prosecuting Attorney, City and County of Honolulu; and Hawaii Health Systems Corporation.
Your Committee finds that this measure expands the scope of collective bargaining between public sector employers and the exclusive representatives of public employees.
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 H.B. No. 2114, H.D. 2, S.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
