Guam - The Guam Federation of Teachers is hoping to sign a collective bargaining agreement between the union and the Department of Public Works for bus drivers. According to GFT president Matt Rector, the contract was completed a long time ago, but there were some issues brought up by former DPW director Larry Perez.

Rector says he's hoping both entities will be able to sign the document, telling KUAM News, "We're excited and we're hoping to get this contract out quick so that beginning of the school year, our kids will have good, safe buses and well rested bus drivers so they can protect all of our children."

The contract includes the formation of a safety committee, which will be tasked with inspecting buses to ensure the safety of both the students and bus drivers.
