Gov. Abercrombie on the HGEA ratification vote


Honolulu – Governor Neil Abercrombie released the following statement on the Hawai’i Government Employees Association ratification vote:

“Without accusations and confrontation, the state and six of the seven bargaining units of the Hawai’i Government Employees Association have come to an agreement that brings an end to Furlough Fridays and produces the savings needed to help balance the budget in our financial plan.

“HGEA members have families and pay taxes like the rest of us. Over the years, they have carried a heavy burden in increasingly difficult work conditions. But HGEA members want to move Hawai’i forward as we all do. Throughout Hawai’i, people are ready to follow their example — to attack our problems instead of attacking each other.”
