The AFSCME is the nation's largest and fastest growing public services employees union with more than 1.6 million active and retired members.  The AFSCME's members provide the vital services that make America happen.  With members in hundreds of different occupations, the AFSCME advocates for fairness in the workplace, excellence in public services and prosperity and opportunity for all working families.

UPW is affiliated and works closely with the AFSCME to serve both active and retiree members locally.

The AFL-CIO is the umbrella federation for U.S. unions, with 56 unions representing more than 12 million working men and women.  The AFL-CIO works to ensure that all people who work receive the rewards of their work -- decent paychecks and benefits, safe jobs, respect and fair treatment.

The NLRB is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1935 to administer the National Labor Relations Act, the primary law governing relations between unions and employers in the private sector.  The statute guarantees the right of employees to organize and to bargain collectively with their employers or to refrain all such activity.  Generally applying to all employees involved in interstate commerce -- other than airlines, railroads, agriculture, and government -- the Act implements the national labor policy of assuring free choice and encouraging collective bargaining as a means of maintaining industrial peace.

The HLRB conducts hearings to decide complaints filed by public and private sector employees, employee organizations or unions, and employers alleging prohibited or unfair labor practice complaints.  The Board also conducts union representation elections, supervises the impasse procedures in public employment, and issues declaratory rulings which clarify the applicability of governing statutes and its rules.

The CLEAR was established in 1976 by State Law, Act 202, is now a part of the University of Hawaii at West Oahu.  Like the many other University and College Labor Studies programs nationally, the CLEAR is designed to provide labor education, research and labor-related programs to workers, their organizations and the general public through a variety of methods including classroom instruction, seminars, workshops, publications, the internet and other public media.  For CLEAR class schedule, please click here.
