CCU will continue talks on utility managers' pay increases

Posted: Updated:

The Consolidated Commission on Utilities will resume its meeting Tuesday for more discussion on management pay raises. Last week the organization accepted the legal advice of outside counsel Vince Leon Guerrero and voted to rescind the raises and bonuses of seven top executives, including the general managers of the Guam Power Authority and the Guam Waterworks Authority.

But there is a question of whether four other executives should be allowed to keep their increases. Commissioner Simon Sanchez asked Leon Guerrero about the assistant general managers for administration and engineering for GPA, and the AGMs for administration and compliance for GWA.

"Those four assistant general managers, does the law allow the CCU to set their pay? I don't believe it does," Sanchez questioned, to which Leon Guerrero responded, "I didn't see that in there." Sanchez said he didn't see it, either.

Sanchez says they should be allowed then to keep their raises. The CCU also wants to hear from outside counsel about a timetable for the executives to return the raises and bonuses.

Attorney Leon Guerrero is expected to report back to them at Tuesday's meeting.
