Bus drivers file complaint against Rector

Guam - About seven DoDEA bus drivers who are part of the Alutiiq School Bus Drivers Unit were hoping to file a criminal complaint at the Hagatna Precinct this morning against GFT President Matt Rector. Instead, police officers were directed to file a complaint with the Legislature or with the Department of Labor.

GFT members and school bus driver Edward Quintanilla told KUAM News this morning they are not satisfied with Rector's leadership. This past June KUAM News brought you the story about the Alutiiq Unit's concern with Rector and how he allegedly concealed and refused to hold an election in February 2009 for the Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson of the Alutiiqu School Bus Drivers Unit.  Quintanilla in June said close to 20 GFT members voiced their concerns about the secret election to Rector and the Union's Vice-President, but were met with hostility and adversity.

Quintanilla told KUAM this morning that he met to discuss his concerns with AFT Western Regional Director Sol Smith last week. Smith is currently on Guam not only looking into Quintanilla's concerns but other concerns raised in recent months from former members like Carol Somerfleck, who also is unsatisfied with Rector's leadership.

Smith is expected to release the findings of his investigations during a GFT membership meeting scheduled for tomorrow in Mangilao.
