Guam - The Guam International Airport Authority's board of directors will meet next month with Alan Searle, who conducted the certified technical professional positions study that's caused so much controversy among airport staffers. A committee made up of three board members, consultant Frank Santos and the GIAA's legal counsel will discuss the CTP.
Committee chairman Tony Sgro says the group will discuss their concerns with Searle and ask him how he came up with the numbers he did.
Airport management has asked the board to approve the study at the second market percentile, which would equate to raises for management of between $20,000 and $35,000 a year, while most other airport employees would see minimal raises. Sgro and other board members expressed concerns that the study lacks parity and the airport cannot afford to implement significant raises at this time.
The meeting is scheduled for April 1.
