Randy Perreira is executive director of the Hawaii Government Employees Association, Hawaii’s largest union that has nearly 43,000 members statewide. HGEA exclusively represents seven of the 13 public state and county collective bargaining units, and Perreira is the chief negotiator, according to the organization’s Web site.
He became the union’s executive director in 2008, after a 22-year career that began as an entry-level union agent.
Perreira studied management at Notre Dame, and received a master’s degree in personnel from Michigan State according to his February 2008 interview with Hawaii Business magazine.
