AG Upholds Rector’s Status As GFT President


Guam – Acting Governor Michael Cruz, issued the following statement on the legal guidance he has received from the Attorney General regarding the Guam Federation of Teachers.

“In response to the arguments presented and based on the Attorney General’s legal opinion, Mr. Rector’s status as the President of the Guam Federation of Teachers is valid until another election is held. With this guidance and the clarity it provides, I am assured that ongoing collective bargaining should proceed as scheduled thus ensuring the interests of our public sector employees are protected.  It is my hope that the Attorney General’s guidance will resolve the recent conflicts associated with the Guam Federation of Teachers.”
