**Update on HawaiianTel acquisition of SystemMetrics, 9/10/13**
"We met with Sr. VP Barber on September 6, 2013 regarding the acquisition of SystemsMetrics to discuss labor issues. Although it was reported that there's no hourly/union work within SystemsMetrics, Barber reported that there is a possibility that some of the work exists. Because the sale is not firm yet, the company has agreed to keep us informed." --Kimi Koge, Business Manager/Financial Secretary
"With the announcement of Hawaiian Telcom’s acquisition of SystemMetrics Corp., a request was sent to meet with Sr. Management to review the Union’s concerns, i.e. employees, benefits, job functions, scope of work, support, products, etc. As information becomes available, we will communicate it via website, shop stewards, and Executive Board Members. " --Kimi Koge, Business Manager/Financial Secretary
