Senate resolution calls for hearing on Lemanu's pay and job conversion roll backs

Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — Through a Senate Resolution, Sen. Malaepule Saite Moliga, is calling for a hearing to review Gov. Lemanu Peleti Palepoi Sialega Mauga’s Feb. 5th memorandum, which orders the roll-back of pay adjustments made without justification in the budget as well as converting contract workers to career service employees without going through the merit process — since Jan. 1, 2019 to the present.

According to the resolution — sponsored by the Manu’a senator and introduced this week in the Senate — the governor’s memo has caused great concern to the ASG workforce and that many employees have reached out to the senators seeking relief.

The memo — which is summarized in the resolution — “has already been implemented against hardworking ASG employees.”

Additionally, the Senate is also concerned about how this memo will have a negative impact on many ASG employees who were granted salary adjustments and conversions from contract to career service status based on merit.
