The Trade Union Office Has Moved?

The shifting of a trade union office from a town to outside the town boundary has upset some members. Some members did not even know the office was relocating.

One member had to hire a taxi to get to the new office only to find out that the office was closed because the salaried employee had not turned up.

“Why was the office moved when it was conveniently and centrally located in the hub of the town?” the member asked.

For his information, the union had bought the building and it was good business sense to move the office there.

Hang on a minute, has the union explained this to its members. Questions also hang on the union’s property acquisitions and sales. Sometime ago the union’s co-operative was liquidated. The grounds are unclear.

The co-operative had a string of property investments which included the Nasoso property in Nadi. Incidentally, that property which had a valuation of $200,000 was recently sold for $100,000. Have members been told about it?

What about the properties at Nayau St, Khemendra St and Flagstaff in Suva? As we speak, papers for the sale of 14 prime lots in Savusavu are being prepared. The lots are valued at several millions of dollars.

Then there is that property at Pacific Harbour. Could that be going too? What members are asking is: Where is all this money going to and for what purpose? Will members have a bite of the cherry in the form of dividends?
