STAND. COM. REP. NO. 684
RE: H.B. No. 1008
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Labor & Public Employment, to which was referred H.B. No. 1008 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE OFFICE OF COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AND MANAGED COMPETITION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
(1) Transfer the Office of Collective Bargaining and related organizational functions and funding, including the Chief Negotiator position, from the Office of the Governor to the Department of Human Resources Development (DHRD); and
(2) Eliminate references to managed competition, thereby renaming the Office of Collective Bargaining and Managed Competition to the Office of Collective Bargaining.
Your Committee has amended this measure by changing its effective date to January 1, 2050, to facilitate further discussion.
Your Committee notes that the Chief Negotiator position has remained vacant for several years and as such, your Committee questions whether this position should remain a full-time position or whether it should be a part-time or contract position.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Labor & Public Employment that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1008, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 1008, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Labor & Public Employment,
AARON LING JOHANSON, Chair
