Superior Court of Guam Judge Michael J. Bordallo signed an Alternative Writ of Mandamus; directed to the Port Authority of Guam and Joanne Brown in her capacity as the General Manager of the Port.
General Manager Brown was ordered by the Court to forward the Collective Bargaining Agreement that had been signed and ratified by the PAG Board and the GFT in 2012 to the Attorney General’s Office for review and appropriate action; so the CBA can be processed to Governor Calvo for his signature as he stated he would sign upon the Attorney General’s review.
The Guam Federation of Teachers Union and the Workers of the PAG have been waiting for the past two years for the Collective Bargaining Agreement they entered into with the PAG Board to be fully processed.
The GFT has worked the past two years to administratively have the CBA processed and implemented. However, with no action by the Ports’ General Manager to forward the CBA to the Attorney General’s Office, the GFT believed it had no alternative in fulfilling its Mission and Obligation of Protecting and Promoting the Rights and Welfare of the PAG Workers, but to obtain a Court Order to force the Port’s General Manager to do what she was supposed to have done a long time ago.
