|Brothers and Sisters,
On Friday, May 6, 2016, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) placed its Local 1260 in Honolulu under trusteeship. The trusteeship was imposed in accordance with the IBEW’s Constitution and federal labor law to prevent and correct financial issues within the local.
A trustee assigned by the IBEW will operate the local while it is under trusteeship. The local’s collective bargaining agreements remain in effect and the business of the local will continue while under trusteeship.
An investigation and audit of Local 1260 is continuing. The IBEW will have no further comment until the process is complete.
