305 Adverse Actions against GovGuam workers

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam – The Calvo administration reports more adverse action was taken against GovGuam employees in the past 7 months. According to a news release from Adelup, the administration dismissed 112 unclassified employees.  GovGuam agency directors also issued 117 letters of counseling, warning and reprimand to employees not doing their jobs.

The governor's office notes 76 suspensions, demotions, dismissals and referrals for prosecution that was sent to the Attorney General's office. What's worse is these figures are not final and are expected to increase, as Adelup officials state not every agency submitted its data to the census of adverse actions they are conducting.

In total that brings the number of adverse action conducted to 305 since Calvo took office. Despite the government's ongoing cry for being short staff governor Calvo states they are cutting, "This government can no longer operate the way it's been operating for decades. It's time for change, change that we promised and change that we're delivering."

The governor's office also says it's setting the example, as they cut their workforce by 16 percent.
