Guam - Employees of the Guam Shipyard will have the opportunity to decide whether they want union representation on Wednesday. The election will be held at the Ship Repair Facility on base. The National Labor Relations Board is conducting the election that was requested by Shipyard workers who approached the Guam Federation of Teachers months ago. 

The GFT and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers are on the ballot, vying to represent the 273 workers. Voting will be held from 6-9am Wednesday and again from 3-6pm tomorrow evening. Either union must get at least 50-percent-plus-one in order to be declared the winner.
