Kutz seeking $3.8M in overdue teacher pay

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Attorney Robert Kutz will file a motion in the Superior Court of Guam tomorrow morning urging the Government of Guam to pay some $3.8 million in funds owed to teachers for School Year '03-'04. Kutz tells KUAM News that about 1,800 teachers from John F. Kennedy High School were supposed to have been paid since last March, when the court made a final ruling.

It was last week Guam Education Policy Board Finance Committee chairperson Joe San Agustin told KUAM that DOE legal counsel informed him that the payment is actually less, as some of the teachers were paid and overpaid. San Agustin added that the board would not accept the payments until the matter is settled before the court. 

However, attorney Kutz says it's been more than one year since the case was settled by both the court and the Civil Service Commission. The Guam Federation of teachers also noted their concerns that the money was illegally taken from teachers during that school year.
