Guam - Law enforcement and public safety personnel who were supposed to get their third mandated 10% pay increase as per Guam law are invited to attend a town hall meeting this Wednesday at the Guam Legislature.  The meeting is being hosted by Public Safety Chair Senator Adolpho Palacios.

The raises were not included in the Fiscal Year 2011 budget.  DOA is also asking the Legislature to repeal the law and just give public safety personnel the increases as stated in the Hay Study.  Wednesday's town hall meeting is from noon to 3:30pm.

Attendees will also be provided information on Bill 467 which relates to the recent Supreme Court of Guam decision related to 40-hour workweeks as opposed to 43 hours.  Since the opinion was rendered several law enforcement personnel have seen a reduction in their paychecks.
