Kauai Restaurants

Patronizing companies in collective bargaining with ILWU Local 142 supports our local economy and your brothers and sisters. This is vital to strengthening our economy and community. Without a healthy economy, our communities suffer because of the slowdown in economic activity which may lead to decreased household incomes or the loss of jobs. Therefore, please patronize these restaurants that negotiate fair contracts providing a high standard of living, health and retirement benefits for your brothers and sisters.
