Hagåtña, Guam - Governor Lou Leon Guerrero has issued the following statement on Pay Status for Employees Responding to COVID-19:
"No amount of pay could equal the service, sacrifice, and hard work of our frontliners. That is why we created COVID differential pay in the first place, and why we have always supported a new wage study for teachers and nurses. Though we will reserve comment on a matter which may be litigated, we are confident our administration has acted in accordance with the laws of Guam, and the government's personnel rules. In the weeks to come, we hope that the Guam Federation of Teachers and others will work with us to protect lives and livelihoods in both the public and private sectors."
