GMH may have quit, but teachers move forward

by Krystal Paco

Guam - The Guam Federation of Teachers may have called it quits, but Attorney Daniel Somerfleck says individual teachers are pursuing further action with the grievance process.

He said, "One of the things that struck me is that the union is saying they're not going to pursue it doesn't mean the teachers have to accept that 0528 and not go and continue to pursue it. It's a minefield of a case it's not as clean of a case as other cases I've taken because we have a supreme court decision that says it wasn't a furlough and they didn't have jurisdiction to make a ruling."

Roughly ten teachers have moved through the first two steps of the grievance process and Somerfleck anticipates more to come forward.
