Palacios disagrees with repealing raises

Guam - Public Safety Committee chairman Senator Adolpho Palacios disagrees with the Department of Administration's recommendations to repeal the promised 10% pay increases for law enforcement employees within the public sector.  Palacios says the law is the law and public safety personnel are owed what is mandated.

"They're not in conflict with the Hay Study," he clarified, "they just have to reconcile whatever differences.  But the Hay Study does not and should not negate what already has been passed. So that letter I read it and it says law enforcement officers are already included in the Hay Study and we recommend that you repeal this, well I threw away the letter, I didn't even respond to that."

Palacios is inviting public safety personnel to meet at the Guam Legislature next Wednesday for an informational briefing.  Additionally he intends to talk with police officers about the impacts of a Supreme Court decision on the 43-hour workweek for law enforcement staffers. The briefing will be held from 12-3.
