More than 8,000 professional and scientific Hawaii government employees can vote on a settlement offer from the state.

The Hawaii Government Employees Association says the offer doesn't meet the negotiating team's priorities but the union is giving Unit 13 members an opportunity to accept or reject it. Voting is scheduled for Friday through Tuesday.

Terms include 4 percent salary increases and 60 percent employer contribution to health insurance premiums.

On Thursday, 2,300 administrative, professional and technical employees of the University of Hawaii overwhelmingly ratified a new two-year contract.
