Lifeguards ‘left out by Govt’
Lifeguards want to know when Government intends to rescue them from the difficult situation they are in.
A spokesman for the group told the DAILY?NATION that they were disappointed Government had overlooked them again despite having a detailed report for the development of the Lifeguard Service, which was submitted before Cricket World Cup 2007.
“We sent the proposals to Government. The general manager of the National Conservation Commission and the union [the National Union of Public Workers] agreed to the proposals, but the Civil Service said they had no money to back the proposals,” said the spokesman, who said lifeguards were “agitated” about the situation.
Among the proposals, which the spokesman said were critical for the overall development of the Lifeguard Service, was one for the service to be switched from the NCC to the Ministry of Health or the Coast Guard. (MB)
