Kauai Teachers confront Gov. Abercrombie

(HawaiiNewsNow) - The teachers contract dispute with the state continues over on the Garden Isle and it's posted on youtube.  Watch the complete video here

Several Kauai teachers purportedly confronted Governor Neil Abercrombie on Saturday. They say that they feel abandoned by the Governor, after supporting his campaign. The 10 minute conversation is mostly civil and the Governor indicates that he would be willing to come back to the negotiating table immediately.

The teachers say that the Governor is wrong when he says issues were agreed to as the contract was being determined. The Governor says he's been waiting for the HSTA to come back with a counter offer so they can work out any problems.  The contract dispute is now before the Hawaii State labor board.
