The Hawaii Government Employees Association announced late Thursday that it would allow its unit of state professional and scientific workers to vote on a state contract offer even though it has not been endorsed by the union's negotiating team.

The two-year contract offer would provide roughly 4 percent annual raises. Workers would pay a 40 percent share of their health insurance premiums, down from 50 percent.

The offer to the 8,100-member HGEA white-collar unit is similar to contract agreements reached with other HGEA bargaining units.

Ratification votes are scheduled from today through Tuesday.
