Guam - It was a couple of months ago that the Guam Educational Board approved a motion to move forward with collective bargaining negotiations with the Guam Federation of Teachers and while DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez had hoped the negotiating teams would be approved last month there was a slight delay.

He said, "We had the negotiating team proposed for the board to consider and approve and at that time they also wanted to see the union's bargaining team and that list wasn't ready we now have both lists."

Fernandez says he believes the board will act on the negotiating team at tonight's board meeting. The next step will be an executive session meeting to get a sense of where the board would like to go with the negotiations. As we reported Fernandez requested that he lead the negotiations with GFT along with five principals from the elementary, middle school, and high school levels. The last negotiated collective bargaining agreement with GFT expired in November of 2011.
