300 public school teachers file grievances over pay

by Jolene Toves

Guam - Three hundred Department of Education employees from fourteen schools around the island filed grievances with the Department of Education regarding the implementation of the Hay pay act.

DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez says concerns were raised by some of the department's senior teachers, questioning the method, reasoning and fairness of their placement in the new pay scale. Fernandez says they have been informed of the appeals process that has been set up by Department of Administration to handle the reviews. He says the employees have also chosen to avail themselves of the grievance process within DOE. According to Fernandez none of the grievances have made it to his desk. He says some are in the second step of the process currently under review by the deputy superintendent. After the deputy responds if there is further need for review or appeal it will go to Step Three, which is review by Fernandez.
