Maui County Council votes unanimously to fund Unit 14 Ocean Safety Officers' pay raises

May 20, 2016

This morning the full Maui County Council voted unanimously to fund the Maui County Ocean Safety Officers' arbitrated pay raises. Last week the Maui County Budget and Finance Committee had passed a resolution to add the funding for the award to the proposed county budget.

HGEA Executive Director Randy Perreira testified today, urging the Maui County Council members to fund the arbitrated pay raises that the ocean safety officers so deserve.

Thank you to all of the HGEA members and supporters statewide who emailed, called, testified and even sign waved to raise awareness for this critical funding legislation. By standing strong and working together we can truly make a difference.
