Lingle issues statement on HGEA ratification

MEDIA RELEASE

Gov. Linda Lingle released the following statement on the ratification by Hawaii Government Employees Association (HGEA) members of a new two-year contract:

I am pleased that HGEA members ratified the agreement reached between HGEA leadership and the state and counties. HGEA members clearly recognized that the type of shared sacrifice embodied in our agreement is necessary to help see our state through the budget crisis we are now experiencing.

State and county employees work hard and serve the public well. These furlough days are not a reflection on their dedication – they are a reflection of the current fiscal reality.

The state, the counties, and our dedicated employees, together, are working toward an improved economic environment.
