Experience brings the strength


Executive Director

Brandon Ili is a second generation member of Local 3.  He started in the apprenticeship program in 1992, then worked for Ron’s Construction where he eventually became a foreman.  He started working for the Hawaii Operating Engineers Industry Stabilization Fund as the Oahu Compliance Officer in 2013, then became a Business Agent for District 17 before becoming HOEISF’s Executive Director in June 2021.

Here at HOEISF, we support, promote, and encourage fair contracting and provide a level playing field in the public arena for both contractor and workers.

We will continue to move forward with compliance and lobbying to ensure a great future for our great local.


Big Island Representative

Wayne worked in the public county sector for over twenty years before finally joining Local 3 in 2003, starting off as an oiler for Kobayashi.  He eventually found himself working for Hensel Phelps in 2016, where he worked his way up to the Operator Foreman before joining the Hawaii Operating Engineers Industry Stabilization Fund as the Big Island Representative in June 2021.

As the Stabilization Representative for Hawaii County, I will continue to ensure that prevailing wage laws are in compliance, maintain our relationships within government as well as with developers.


Oahu/Kauai Island Representative

Justin previously worked as a Labor Law Enforcement Specialist (Investigator) and then as the Intake and Certification Branch Chief for the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations Department for the State of Hawaii, where he would investigate, and enforce labor laws, including Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS), Chapter 104, and prevailing wages on public works projects.  He has a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from UH Manoa, taking courses such as Business Law, Statistics, Information, and Computer Sciences, and Written Communication in Business.  While working at the DLIR, Justin also conducted workshops and outreach events for government agencies, employers, employees and unions about the requirements of HRS 104.

It is a privilege to work with the Hawaii Operating Engineers where I can continue to ensure that we receive fair and equal pay on all public work projects.




Oahu/Maui Island Representative

Teddy Charles brings nearly 10 years of experience enforcing the labor laws of Hawaii as an Investigations Section Supervisor with the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations, overseeing all the investigators in his division to ensure compliance with the laws, including HRS 104 (Wages and Hours of Employees on Public Works), HRS 378 (Employment Practices – Unlawful Suspension or Discharge), HRS 387 (Wage and Hour), and HRS 388 (Payment of Wages and Other Compensation).  As a supervisor, he oversaw labor law enforcment specialists on Maui and the Hawaii Island that were engaged in conducting predominatly highly complex labor law compliance investigations.

I am eager to continue to use my knowledge and experience with labor laws to help promote economic equality, and safer working conditions for all.
