Rev & Tax says GFT's bylaws acceptable

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam Federation of Teachers is in the clear with the Department of Revenue & Taxation regarding its amended constitution and bylaws. The issue was that the new version did not include the signatures of the executive council members.

Rev & Tax Director Art Ilagan says the overnight investigation concluded that both the GFT president and the secretary signed-off on the amendments. He adds that the secretary's approval satisfies the requirements of the Business License Division, and there is no longer a need to look into the matter.  "Everything was filed properly with Rev & Tax," said Ilagan.  "You just got to make sure that they have meetings and the minutes, and that to me is a civil issue between GFT and their membership if it was it done properly."

Concerns were raised over the GFT amendments filed last October. The changes include a term extension for union officers by an additional year from two to three years, and bumps up the election day from April to February of an election year, in this case this past February.
