The Hawaii Government Employees Association represents close to 28,000 active members, as well as more than 12,000 retirees. It is closely watching the outcome of lawsuits filed on the mainland by some groups looking to claim back dues following the recent decision by the US Supreme court. That ruling, tied to first amendment arguments, allows public employees to opt out of paying union dues altogether.
