SSA short of trucks


Share post:

LEPTOSPIROSIS poses a real threat to the dozens of Sanitation Service Authority (SSA) workers, who are already faced with having to collect piles of additional garbage.
Deputy general secretary of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), Roslyn Smith, said there was a major shortage of SSA?collection trucks that could have implications for the health of workers.
“When you have garbage out there for an inordinate length of time, that can be a haven for rodents. Leptospirosis is on the rise and workers can be exposed to this additional hazard.
“This is a serious issue. The public needs to take note and put pressure on the powers that be to do the right thing. People pay taxes and they expect a service,” she said.
