The Hawaii Labor Relations Board can’t be compelled to rule on a request by the union representing Hawaii public school teachers for immediate relief from terms of a state-imposed contract, the state Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.

The Hawaii State Teachers Association had asked the court to order the labor board to rule on the union’s petition for relief from a 5 percent salary reduction and an equal split on health insurance premiums while the union pursues a prohibited practices complaint against the state.

The HSTA filed a prohibited practices complaint that the state violated members’ rights by implementing its “last, best and final” contract offer over the summer after the union declined to take a tentative agreement to its members for a vote.
