Unionized workers at Hawaiian Telcom voted down an amended contract offer Tuesday that had softened some of the concessions demanded earlier by the company.

Members voted 283-216 to reject the proposal that called for a modest wage increase but a reduction in paid sick leave and a higher employee contribution for health care premiums.

“The negotiating team is reviewing all options at this time and a meeting is scheduled with the company tomorrow (Wednesday) to discuss the vote results,” according to a post on the union’s website.

A Hawaiian Telcom spokesman said the company was reviewing the situation, but did not have an immediate comment.
