The Hawaii Labor Relations Board conducts hearings to decide complaints filed by public and private sector employees, employee organizations or unions, and employers alleging prohibited or unfair labor practice complaints. These cases typically involve an employer or union’s failure to bargain in good faith, an employer or union’s interference with an employee’s right to participate in or refrain from bargaining activities, or a union’s failure to fairly represent its members in the negotiation of agreements or the pursuit of grievances. The Board also conducts union representation elections, supervises the impasse procedures in public employment, and issues declaratory rulings which clarify the applicability of governing statutes and its rules.
