HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A tentative agreement has been reached between the Hawaii Government Employees Association Unit 6 and the state, which includes a salary raise of 13.53 percent over the next four years.

A ratification vote takes place Friday and Saturday for HGEA’s Unit 6 members, which covers school principals. If the tentative agreement is not ratified, the unit will proceed to an arbitration currently scheduled for June 5 through 10.

The contract includes a 1.8 percent raise starting July 1, followed by everyone moving up one step on the salary schedule in January with those at the top getting a 1.4 percent lump sum payment. Similar adjustments will be in effect in the years to follow.
