For he past 16 years, Guam Shipyard has supported its employees and treated them as family. Guam Shipyard and its employees have joined together in good and lean times.

Shipyard employees should expend their monies on their families vice paying union dues. Therefore, Guam Shipyard opposes Union Representation for its employees.
