Guam - While we wait for the Calvo Administration to release specific details on just how many jobs will be on the chopping block and plans for reorganizing the Government of Guam. The Guam Federation of Teachers stands ready to take legal action if necessary.

GFT president Matt Rector told KUAM News, "GFT is a labor union and our purpose is very easy: to improve the quality of life for our members and their families and when you think about that we do that through collective bargaining agreements, we do that through representation at the CSC.

According to the GFT's web site, there are close to 3,000 members in the local union coming from different government agencies.
