Roughly 4,200 members who have HSTA VB medical/prescription drug or dental plans will be seeing adjustments in future paychecks due to an error made by the Hawaii Employer-Union Health Benefits Trust Fund.
Hawaii public school teachers are scheduled to receive negotiated pay increases this fall. Effective the first day of the second quarter, educators will receive a 3.5 percent across-the-board pay raise, which will show up in their paychecks starting Nov. 5.
Starting this Friday, members who began receiving shortage differentials in the spring will see a drop in their summer paychecks. This decrease is a result of the differential only being payable for half of the year, and you have already been paid a large portion of the differential.
