[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana Postal and Telecommunication Workers Union (GPTWU) said it is interested in improving the living conditions of its members.
In this regard, the Union’s President, Harold Shepherd and General Secretary Eslyn Harris, met with Minister within the Ministry of Communities, Keith Scott, where they expressed the desire to acquire land from the Ministry for about 200 of its members, according to a press release from the Ministry.
According to the release, Minister Scott encouraged the Union to have its members apply for house lots, while advising that land will not be allocated en bloc.
“He emphasized that Government, though keen on building houses in cohesive communities, will also offer serviced lots to those persons who prefer to design and construct their own homes. He noted that the turnkey houses which cost $4.9M, would be suitable for some members of the GPTWU,” the release stated.
It was further noted that the Minister reiterated that government is aggressively engaged in delivering on its promises to “Renew the Dream”, by improving the quality of life of Guyanese in sustainable and cohesive communities.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Central Housing and Planning Authority, Myrna Pitt was also part of the meeting which was held at the Minister’s Brickdam office.
