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
How Cyber-Secure Are You?

 

INSIGHTS explores cyber-security in this modern age of data. Your new big screen smart TV looks innocent enough. But Wikileaks’ latest raft of documents alleged the CIA had created tools to turn smart TVs into bugging devices. Vizio and Netflix already admitted to tracking customer behavior through TV’s. Our smartphones and computers can be targeted by hackers. But you have more control over these intrusions and criminal acts than you might imagine.
