Posted: Updated:

Guam - A Guam Federation of Teachers general membership meeting is scheduled to be held this evening at the Mangilao Compound where teachers at Agana Heights Elementary School are hoping for the union to address amendments submitted a couple of months ago. While they had hoped these amendments were going to be brought up during AFT western regional director Sol Smith's visit back in September, Smith had advised the GFT to give proper notification to members.

According to former GFT steward Carol Somerfleck, the teachers have resubmitted amendments initially drafted by former union member Barry Mead, asking for the union to go back to where it was before current GFT president Matt Rector made changes to the constitution.
