Keeping Informed

We get the news out to you in two primary ways: through our E-News updates and the Malama Pono Newsletter. Malama Pono means to “take proper care.” Staying informed is a way for us to take proper care of Our Union Family.

Malama Pono

The Malama Pono newsletter is delivered to homes quarterly to keep you informed about the valuable work members do in the community, info on events & meetings at the headquarters and within the division, and issues affecting labor in the legislative and political arenas.

In addition to the Malama Pono, UPW periodically sends out regular E-news Updates, so make sure your email address is up to date by calling our offices.  E-News Updates are often sent out during negotiations, legislative sessions (as a call to action on bills that would affect our jobs), and political campaign seasons (as a way of keeping informed about our endorsement activities). Make sure we have your email address by updating your member information HERE

Despite heavy rain, Kida Nursing Home workers walked off the job in a spontaneous response to the discharge of four employees. Worker anger and the spontaneity of the action are reflected in the crudely printed slogans.
