Guam - It's good news for Department of Education employees awaiting their increments as DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez announces the successful processing of 3,750 salary increments over the last six weeks.
In an email sent to all DOE staff, Fernandez writes "this means that all employees owed salary increments between October 2011 and June 2013 have seen or will see their paychecks adjusted by this Friday to reflect the higher bi-weekly amount."
Fernandez thanks his staff for expediting the work. In the past two weeks, staff processed 2,225 salary increments.
He adds, retroactive payment of increments is the next step, but may only be paid out once the Department of Administration releases the funds which they anticipate will happen before the end of the month.
