Guam - The Guam Federation of Teachers is working on its own pay scale for Government of Guam employees. Union president Matt Rector says they looked at the study conducted by the Hay Group and he says it does not meet the requirements set by the Guam Legislature.

Rector says they are putting together a proposal that will be separated into four pay scales for educators, healthcare professionals, public safety personnel and then for general employees. Rector is optimistic that their pay scale will ensure GovGuam employees get the percentage increases they were promised.  "Once all these mandates have been fulfilled with the $18.5 million that they were planning to spend on the Hay implementation anyway, we'll take out every bit that's left we'll divide it up by the number of employees that are left and attach that to a unified pay scale," he explained.

Rector says the GFT hopes to complete the pay scale by the end of this week so that they can present it to the Legislature for consideration.
