Governor Linda Lingle issued the following statement this afternoon (Friday, July 17, 2009):

“The State will be sending out consultation letters to the unions Monday morning, listing the names of employees who may be subjected to a reduction in force.

“The State believes it was appropriate to first inform the affected employees directly before simply putting their names on a list to the union, rather than having them learn from someone else.

“We strongly believe that letting the affected employees know first was the absolute right thing to do.

“I apologize that employees in one department were notified by recorded message.”
