Hundreds protest for negotiated teacher contract

By Associated Press

EWA BEACH, Hawaii (AP) Hundreds of people held a protest near James Campbell High School in Ewa Beach to speak out in favor of a negotiated contract for teachers.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser says the crowd of about 600 teachers, students, parents and community members are urging the governor to negotiate with them on a new contract.

Thursday's protest came one day after a state negotiating team presented the teacher's union with a contract for 2013 to 2015. Hawaii State Teachers Association President Wil Okabe says the union is still looking over the contract, but teachers are disappointed so far.

In May, 66 percent of the teachers' union members approved a contract that the union had previously rejected. Because of the initial rejection, the state has not accepted the vote as valid.
