PSWU appeals for funds to complete school

Public Service Workers Union (PSWU) of Trades Union Congress (TUC) in the Upper West Region has appealed to stakeholders to build additional classrooms for the Union Day Care International school in Wa.

The Union as part of its responsibility put up a Day Nursery which had now grown to the status of Primary school and Junior High School come this academic year.

The Union through its resource mobilisation had been able to put up a school block which is at the lentil level but had run out of funds and needed public support to complete the project.

Mr. Mwinkaara Bruno, the outgoing Chairperson of the PSWU made this known during a delegates’ conference in Wa on Monday.

The occasion was also used to elect executive members to manage the affairs of the Union for the next four years.

Mr. Saeed Nurudeen was elected as Chairperson of the Union with Mr Saaka Malibunaa and Mr Rabiatu Musa as first and second Vice Chairpersons. They were elected unopposed.

The first trustee position went to Madam Letitia Bazaawaale who polled 43 votes to beat Mr. Osman Abdul Rahman and Celestine Hanoi who had 24 and 11 votes respectfully.

Madam Rebecca Aa-ernir also emerged victorious with 42 votes as against 28 votes for Mr. Razak Tobie to win the second trustee position.

The Women’s Committee Chairperson position went to Madam Elizabeth Beele with Cordilia Dery as Vice Chairperson and Monica Zormal as Secretary; all the three were elected unopposed.

Mr. Eric Kukura was elected Youth Chairperson with Madam Grace Dakura as Vice Chairperson and Fredrick Bondong as Secretary.

Mr. William Adii, Assistant Chief Industrial Relations Officer appealed to the government and all present to help the Union achieve its aim of organising a workshop on report writing for branch officers and a leadership training for youth leaders and women. GNA
