Welcome to the official page of the Hawaii Teamsters and Allied Workers Union Local 996. The webpage is under construction and updates have been provided on most links. It is truly an honor to represent the Hawaii Teamsters on the journey forward. The goals for which the Business Representatives have set out this year include increased service time with members in the field, clear and open communications, transparency, and training. The shop stewards are the first line Union representatives many members encounter at the work site and it remains of importance to provide instruction and curriculum to improve the abilities of the shop steward to protect worker rights and enforce the collective bargaining agreement. It is the members who are the most important part of a successful union. The retiree is our foundation and now more than ever before we shall work on collaborating with the retiree group to ensure continued support and participation with the Union. Great things are on the horizon for the members and retirees. Visit the webpage often for continued updates. - Wayne K S Kaululaau, President
During an investigatory interview, the Supreme Court ruled that the following rules apply:
Rule 1: The employee must make a clear request for union representation before or during the interview. The employee cannot be punished for making this request.
Rule 2: After the employee makes the request, the employer must choose from among three options:
grant the request and delay questioning until the union representative arrives and (prior to the interview continuing) the representative has a chance to consult privately with the employee;
deny the request and end the interview immediately; or
give the employee a clear choice between having the interview without representation, or ending the interview.
Rule 3: If the employer denies the request for union representation, and continues to ask questions, it commits an unfair labor practice and the employee has a right to refuse to answer. The employer may not discipline the employee for such a refusal.
