Akanni: Stop with rumours
National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) president Akanni McDowall is calling for an end to the constant rumours surrounding the union’s finances.
The union sought to quash rumours of general secretary Roslyn Smith being called to a National Council meeting to explain her unauthorised use of union finances.
In the MIDWEEK NATION, an informed source said Smith had been sent a memo inviting her to a special meeting yesterday of the council, the union’s highest ranking body, to explain the reasons behind over $13 000 in purchases using the union’s credit card.
“I am concerned with the perception that some members of the National Council are bent on creating confusion in the union,” McDowall told the DAILY NATION following a statement from the NUPW backing Smith.
“This I cannot tolerate when members legitimately have concerns that need to be addressed, like approaching job losses. Substantive member issues must be our focus, not internal wranglings.” (AD)
