first_img Sharing is caring! Tweet Share Share Sharecenter_img General Secretary Mr. Thomas LetangThe Dominica Public Service Union in an effort to address the ongoing challenges which the members of their union employed at the Public Service Corporation are facing, held a “think tank” session and have released a report with a view to resolving these concerns.General Secretary of the Public Service Union (PSU) Mr. Thomas Letang, told a press conference this morning that there are several concerns and challenges at Public Works Corporation which needs to be addressed. The major concern explained by Mr. Letang is the non-payment of salaries.“The problem is that a number of people are employed and are not getting paid nor getting work to do, while other institutions are awarded contracts,” he said.The report also indicates that due to the financial contraints of the PSU, their competitior Emile Gaddarkhan Et Fils has the upper hand in receiving contractual works which the Corporation otherwise should receive. According to Letang, “the Corporation is being sidelined every time a big project of the Government comes up stream and situations like non-adherence to contractual terms by the Ministry of Works, disruptions in work schedules, non-collection of revenues for work done, and frequent changes in management are the main issues.”Letang contends that the constant changes in management leaves the Corporation very weak and therefore issues remain unaddressed.The report has been copied to the Honorable Prime Minster Roosevelt Skerrit, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Public Works, the Chairman and Board of Directors of the Public Works Corporation and the General Manager of the Public Works Corporation.Dominica Vibes News LocalNews DPSU releases think tank report to address ongoing challenges at the Public Works Corporation by: – July 19, 2011 100 Views   no discussionslast_img read more
