Union members of a unit representing more than 8,000 professional and scientific Hawaii government employees have rejected a contract offer from the state.
The Hawaii Government Employees Association said Tuesday night 55 percent voted to reject the two-year offer.  The union previously said the offer didn't meet the negotiating team's priorities but leaders wanted to give Unit 13 members a chance to accept or reject it.
Terms included 4 percent salary increases and 60 percent employer contribution to health insurance premiums.
Both sides will proceed with arbitration.  A neutral arbitrator will be selected and a hearing will be scheduled.
