Mahalo For Your Support

​We would like to thank all the members and retirees who joined us this past week for the hearings for Bill 23. A decision has not yet been announced but we are proud to have your support with us.

​Bill 23 is ​an amendment that extends the ​city surcharge tax which is designated for the rail project. Currently the surcharge tax is set to expire on December 31, 2022 but with Bill 23, it will expire on December 31, 2027. This is to ensure the project has appropriate funding to see it to completion.

People who work in the construction industry understand that sometimes there are setbacks on a job, for whatever reason. We understand that having (and building) the rail system provides more jobs and paychecks for our members than it takes away with this small tax extension.

Thank you again for your support.
