Guam - In a letter written to the District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood former Guam Solid Waste Authority Operations Supervisor Tony Carbullido is expressing his concern regarding the management of Chace Anderson. Anderson is the Vice President of Gershman Brickner and Bratton and the Receiver's Operations Manager.

Carbullido describes a climate of overworked employees and the need for more vehicles and resources to implement the Island-wide Recycling Program. . He says he was fired from his job at the Guam Solid Waste Authority because he was fighting for his employees as well as because Anderson felt that he was close to the Governor and his special advisor Arthur Clark and GSWA Board Member Jon Denight, which he defends, he wasn't.

Carbullido wrote to the federal judge that he warned Anderson that providing the additional task of recycling without providing the required additional vehicles and manpower will cause overwork on both personnel and vehicles.  Matter of fact he says  in 2013 it was non-stop work for himself and his key personnel , working long hours and seven days a week. He added that when the recycling collection began  collection crews were experiencing fatigue from the long hours from 3:00am to 9:00pm and then were expected to report to work again at three the following day.  

He says things got so bad he was eventually removed as the operations supervisor. Anderson took over his position and kicked him out of his office. Eventually he said that after weeks of his 

style of micromanagement and constant criticizing, and listening to the radio talk shows and his negative comments of our local officials, he decided it's time to request from him a two week vacation. Carbullido  wrote  "your Honor these government of Guam employees I have had the experience to supervise are hardworking employees, they deserve to be recognized and treated with respect. These employees have families to support. They have civil rights to a safe and healthy work environment. " he says the problem can be corrected by purchasing more vehicles and personnel to accommodate the recycling collection within regular normal working hours and hiring a local general manager for the guam solid waste authority.

Carbullido's last day on the job is April 27th . He is hoping he'll have the opportunity to meet with the Chief Judge or at least  talk with her on the phone.
