Honolulu Fire Chief Manuel Neves has received a unanimous "no confidence" vote against him from leaders of the Hawaii Fire Fighters Association. They're accusing him of trying to bust the union. It's the first time in the 50-year history of the union that leaders have gone against a chief anywhere in the state. Neves was sworn in as Honolulu's fire chief last March. During his first year in office, the firefighters' union said Neves and his administration have continually ignored the union, in violation of labor rules.
