DepCor petition caps staffers' hours

Posted: Updated:

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - KUAM News has learned a petition is circulating amongst Department of Corrections employees, stating they will no longer work past eight hours a day.  The petition was drafted after agency director J.B. Palacios singled out ten employees in a directive banning they no longer be allowed to accrue overtime.  The ten employees are the same ones that are fighting for all the officers to get their overtime pay.

The ten filed a class action lawsuit against the government last week. 

In the meantime, despite meetings the director has had with the Department of Administration, there's no word on when the $1 million owed to DepCor workers will actually be paid out.
