Cruz notes multiple complaints about GFT

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Acting Governor Mike Cruz wrote a letter to Attorney General Jon Weisenberger today asking his assistance in helping to validate the legitimacy of the Guam Federation of Teachers present leadership and recommending the proper relief should GFT's present leadership not be its authorized representative. Cruz says he's received several complaints from members of the union and public regarding the legitimacy of ongoing collective bargaining negotiations.

He says while these issues would be generally dealt with internally, citizens have argued that the collective bargaining may be invalidated if the GFT's leadership is proven illegitimate. Last week, GCC assistant professor Barry Mead said he will take his concerns to court if the GFT Executive Council does not order that all contract negotiations cease and desist.
