Hawaiian Telcom’s Union Workers Went on Strike Hawaiian Telcom’s Union Workers Went on StrikeHawaiian Telcom’s Union Workers Went on Strike


12 November 2011

Hawaiian Telcom's union, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 1357 (IBEW 1357), organized a strike this week.
The decision to go on strike is the result of the telco’s "last, best and final offer" for a new agreement the company presented to the union in the beginning of October.
Like other larger telcos, Hawaiian Telcom was restructuring contracts with respective union workers. Among the new consessions, union workers should contribute 10% of their pay to cover health care and get a 1% pay increase and a $500 bonus per year over the life of the contract.
The union considered that the deal does not meet their requirements and went on strike to protest.
Although the company warned consumers and businesses about possible delays in fixing service issues due to the strike, it has activated its readiness plans in order to minimize service and repair delays.
