Bus driver files complaint about Rector

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Another complaint has been filed against the Guam Federation of Teachers union.  GFY member and school bus driver Edward Quintanilla filed the grievance with the U.S. Department of Labor, alleging president Matt Rector concealed and refused to hold an election in February 2009 for the chairperson and vice-chairperson of the Alutiiq School Bus Drivers Union.

According to Quintanilla, close to 20 GFT members voiced their concerns about the secret election to Rector and the union's vice-president. He says they were met with hostility and adversity adding "it is like the members do not matter to Rector. All he wants is to remain in power with his buddies."

Quintanilla's complaint follows that of Robert Koss, who said elections for the GFT's officers were concealed back in 2008.  Rector tells KUAM News the complaints have no merit and are untimely.
