McNinch questions union officials' salaries

by Nick Delgado

Guam - University of Guam Professor Ron McNinch has fired off a compliance complaint to the Department of Administration and the Guam Attorney General's Office regarding taxpayers paying union officials salaries.

McNinch cites union policies as well as a 2005 AG's opinion that the payments are incompatible with Guam law.  He says he is now awaiting a response from DOA and the AG's Office regarding his concern, telling KUAM News, "I think that all the right parties need to sit down and work out how to basically comply with the law.  And that's my major concern is just simply comply with the law."

McNinch's complaint is also that UOG and the Guam Federation of Teachers contracts may not be in compliance with local laws.
