Pay raises being implemented by Valentine's Day

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - The Calvo Administration is sharing some love. During a press conference late this afternoon, Governor Eddie Calvo announced that his administration plans to implement hay pay raises by Valentine's Day.  The Administration this afternoon submitted its plan on how the competitive wages will be implemented.

The plan was put together by the Department of Administration's Human Resources Division, utilizing information collected during the study conducted by Hay Group in 2009 and 2010 and adjustments that were included by the governor. Some of the changes include lifting the ceiling on pay hikes for teachers and other professions previously disenfranchised by the plan implemented in 2010, and adding senators to the plan.

The plan is estimated to cost about $20 million in additional payroll costs annually. The wage increases will be phased in for the employees on the general pay plan. Employees with a wage increase will receive approximately 50% of the increase when the plan takes effect, with the full increase by August.     

Employees under the other pay plans such as teachers, nurses, and attorneys will receive the full wage increase upon implementation of the plan.
