INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Bargaining Power

 

White collar. Blue collar. Police. Firefighters. Nurses. Teachers. Scientists. These are just a few of the professions that make up Hawai‘i’s 14 collective bargaining units, representing thousands of State and County workers.

 

Union representatives are currently negotiating new contracts with the State government. What issues present the biggest challenge in these negotiations? Where did each side start and what progress have they made? The State of Hawai‘i Organization of Police Officers (SHOPO) and University of Hawai‘i Professional Assembly (UHPA) are scheduled to join us for this edition of INSIGHTS.

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Party of One

 

Since statehood, Hawai‘i Republicans have won major races, though the victories have been few and far between. In 58 years, there have been two governors, one U.S. Senator and two U.S. Representatives. Democrats have clearly dominated, but Republicans kept it competitive, at least in certain elections for specific races – until now.

 

Currently, the State Legislature is made up of 70 Democrats and six Republicans, with one Republican seriously considering switching parties. Nationally, the majority of governors are Republican, the GOP has momentum across the country and Republicans are in charge in Washington, D.C.

 

Why does our local Republican Party seem to be disappearing? Have Hawai‘i politics become a “Party of One”?
