2/27/14: Dues Increases for HT Members
"Aloha Brothers and Sisters, we have been trying to collect outstanding dues from individuals who are in arrears. Unfortunately we are getting push back from the Company in collecting the back dues via payroll. The affected members were sent certified notifications by our office advising them that the additional dues will be coming out on their next pay period and will continue until it is paid in full. Some members elected to pay it by cash, by check or if not by cash or check, we would make adjustments by payroll deduction. We will work towards getting this resolved with our members as well as with the Company. Sincerely, Kimi"
