Teachers storm GFT offices, demand documents

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Several Agana Heights Elementary School teachers showed up to the Guam Federation of Teachers' office today demanding for union president Matt Rector to provide necessary documents on recent amendments made to the constitution.  Last week GFT Steward Carol Sommerfleck said she was concerned because members haven't been informed about changes.

She further questioned why recent elections haven't been held for the president's position.  Sommerfleck then told KUAM News that Rector should be removed from his seat as president.

While Rector said such documents could be provided to anyone, Sommerfleck said during today's visit, the president could not provide them. Sommerfleck expressed frustration after being turned away.

Rector indicated he would produced the requested infomation at a later time.
