President & CEO Mathews Pothen of Guam Shipyard advises its 280 workers they will not benefit by joining a union.
Guam Shipyard employees are shortly to make an important decision for their future – either to remain status quo or to be represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
With this in mind the shipyard's president stated his views in the following press release:
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.
Guam Shipyard firmly believes that its employees will not benefit from joining the Union especially during these economic hard times.
Shipyard employees should expend their monies on their families vice paying union dues. Therefore, Guam Shipyard opposes Union Representation for its employees.
