Despite HSTA expressing serious concerns about inconsistent protocols and reports from members of transmission of COVID-19 on school campuses, interim Superintendent Keith Hayashi continued to assert that health safety guidelines are being followed and that there had been no evidence of transmission or clusters of COVID-19 at schools.
In a speech to volunteer teacher union leaders from across the state, Hawaii State Teachers Association Executive Director Wilbert Holck Wednesday gave them an important history lesson to recognize HSTA’s 50th anniversary.
Tentative settlement documents for Hawaii State Teachers Association, State of Hawaii, Board of Education
Bargaining Unit 05 (BU05) employees of the Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) and public charter schools have voted to ratify a new two-year contract.
We have reached a tentative agreement with the employer, and your bargaining team, the HSTA Negotiations Committee, and the HSTA Board of Directors overwhelmingly recommend your support in a vote of YES to ratify the agreement.
The agreement provides a framework to allow schools to increase the number of students returning to campuses in the fourth quarter for in-person learning, especially students in elementary schools.
