IBEW to hold strike authorization vote Thursday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A strike authorization vote will be held Thursday, but this one's not in the hotel talks.

Local 1260 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers will conduct one for its members who work for Hawaiian Electric, Maui Electric and the Big Island's HELCO.

Their contract with the electric companies will expire at the end of the month.
