The Local Government Workers Union (LGWU) of Ghana has expressed disappointment with the privatization of property rate collection by some of the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies.
This was contained in a resolution adopted at the 9th Quadrennial delegates conference of the Local Government Workers Union. It said increased revenue generation should not come at the expense of workers who will be declared redundant even though the LGWU supports pragmatic revenue generation mechanisms.
The LGWU also urged the controller and Accountant General’s Department to work closely with the leadership of the LGWU to find lasting solution to the issue of double dues deduction of members.
It also urged government to adequately resource Health and Sanitation departments of the Assemblies to improve sanitation. The LGWU also appealed to the public to contribute towards a peaceful election on December 7th 2012.
