Guam - Today marked the deadline for those wanting to file an appeal over the Competitive Wage Act with the Department of Administration. It was back in February when the hay plan took effect. DOA started accepting the requests for revaluations earlier this month and according to human resources assistant manager Rose Cruz, DOA was in receipt of at least 100 as of yesterday from several Government of Guam agencies. They include the Guam Memorial Hospital, Public Health, Rev & Tax, the General Services Agency, the Guam Behavioral Health and Wellness Center and a few from the Department of Education. DOE meanwhile has had over 900 separate grievances filed with the Civil Service Commission over their dissatisfaction with the Competitive Wage Act. CSC executive director Tony Lamorena says the teachers union however is looking at possibly consolidating the complaints into one grievance. For the DOA process, on June 30, a job review committee will review and sort the appeals and will provide a recommendation by August 1st.
