IBEW to dispute Shipyard election

Posted: Updated:

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Guam Shipyard employees apparently do not want to be represented by a union. Workers participated in elections today to decide whether they wanted union representation and if so, whether they wanted to be represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers or the Guam Federation of Teachers. According to the results that were released by the IBEW, 114 workers voted not to be represented by a union, 73 voted to be represented by the IBEW while 3 voted to be represented by the GFT. 

The elections were conducted by the National Labor Relations Board but they have not released the official results.  The IBEW, however, is disputing 72 of the ballots cast. 

The NLRB is expected to decide whether a runoff election is needed.
