STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1494
RE: S.B. No. 1475
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 S.B. No. 1475, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO WAGES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to require that the foreperson classification be recognized in Hawaii's version of the Davis-Bacon Act governing construction for public works projects and requirements in a collective bargaining agreement be followed when a basic hourly rate is established by the agreement.
Your Committee has amended this measure by specifying that the foreperson classification shall be recognized as a separate wage classification for public works projects and follow the requirements in a collective bargaining agreement only when:
(1) A labor organization chooses to recognize the foreperson classification as a separate wage classification in the collective bargaining agreement; and
(2) Specifically requested by the organization.
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 S.B. No. 1475, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1475, S.D. 1, 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
