I don't see how this is the PAP's fault, seems like yet another case of blame being wrongly attributed to them! Could be SOP, or contractual obligations that dictate this.

I think the WP team should be responsible about it and step out to clarify the matter, lest more uneducated people jump to their own conclusions via flawed reasoning and get angry for nothing.

Y no such news about Potong Pasir..

Or PAP did a 'beautiful' take-over ensuring Mr/Mrs Chiam no pull such similar stunt on em? Eg, transferred these Aljunied contractors to PP?

Yeah, it's strange that the PAP will not honorably pass over control and instead just cause an upheaval like this. If employees ideally should pass control over to their replacements properly before they leave, there should be no reason why the PAP cannot do so. This is a very irresponsible act.

Staying in Aljunied, I can confirm that the rumours are false - the rubbish collector came every day after WP won the elections.

You might want to go down to ATC to ask. At least got one person staying in Aljunied GRC can confirm for all of us here.

Rubbish collector might not be under TC...Its NEA, rubbish definetly have to be cleared on a daily basis. They are saying the cleaners (sweepers etc) & also the contractors (wiring/corridor light replacements & etc). As mentioned by a few forumers termination might not necessary be on the spot but till a date that was being agreed by both parties.Some of them (workers) might choose to get their contract terminated before the stipulated date due to other reason/s.

If the rumors are not true or neither do I say its true (since I ain't a resident under ATC) but there's a FB page (looking for volunteers to help to clean Aljunied)...the person whom started this claims he's a resident under ATC.


Cheerio!

Cynthia Phua promises proper handover
Teo Wan Gek
12 May 2011
Straits Times


ALJUNIED Town Council chairman Cynthia Phua yesterday said the People's Action Party (PAP) team will ensure there is ample time for the Workers' Party (WP) to take over the town council so there will be a smooth transition.

'We will do a proper handover. We will ensure that all the existing contracts that we have are handed over to the new management properly,' she said.

She is in the process of compiling a list of current contracts between the town council and service providers. She will ask them if they wish to continue the contracts with the new town council team, to be led by Mr Low Thia Khiang and the four other newly elected MPs.

Should contractors wish to terminate their contracts, she will alert the WP team at first notice, to give them sufficient time to find new contractors and ensure there is no lapse in the provision of services, she said.

'We will take care of residents' interests,' she added.

Madam Phua was an MP for Aljunied GRC from 2001 until the recent polls, and has chaired the town council since 2003.

Yesterday, she also rubbished a complaint that has surfaced online that the town council seems to have stopped removing rubbish, at least from a particular block in the estate.

'There has been no termination of contracts,' she said. 'The contracts are all existing and still under the current management. If the contractors are not performing, they should be reported to the town council staff.'

She added: 'It's only been four days since Polling Day. What changes could possibly have been made?

'Have faith in us. It's our responsibility to the residents of Aljunied GRC to ensure a smooth handover.'

On concerns the PAP may sabotage the incoming WP team, Madam Phua said: 'The PAP is not that way. It has always been a fair and responsible party. We are direct and transparent in our actions.'

Aljunied Town Council is now managed by CPG Facilities Management, with whom the town council signed a three-year contract last year.

CPG managing director Jeffrey Chua is the town council's general manager. As the town council managing agent, CPG engages the services of other companies for services such as cleaning, maintenance and lift rescue.

Most of the PAP town councils are managed by one of three companies: CPG, EM Services and Esmaco Township Management.

The Straits Times understands that the Hougang Town Council is managed by staff directly hired by the town council, which Mr Low has chaired since 1991.

The WP team could decide to merge the Aljunied and Hougang town councils, since the two constituencies are located next to each other.

Yesterday, Mr Low said in an e-mail reply that he and his team had met HDB's town council secretariat to discuss and seek advice on the handover.

Mr Low said they had not met the town council secretary, who is Mr Chua, the general manager.

Mr Low also confirmed that the WP team plans to ask for a renewal of the tenancy agreement with HDB for the three town council offices.

Meetings and talks with existing employees of the town council 'will be done in due course', he added.

Under the Town Councils Act, 'new Towns need to be gazetted after the 14th day from the publication of the General Election results'. The law requires a constituency's new management to take over a town council within 45 days.

Well glad to hear that...so those unswept blocks perhaps is an isolated case.

Maybe the workers themselves decided to terminate their own contracts...oh well shit happens...

This simply proves again, that this forum is full of people who will hurl mud at the ruling party BECAUSE they are the ruling party without hearing both sides.

AGAIN.

Rabid hatred for the PAP without thinking logically is bad. I personally might not support the PAP, but this is ridiculous. Check your facts first.
It is better to remain silent and be taken as a fool, than to speak and prove your ignorance beyond doubt.

Well... that's what happens when we put up things such as "I heard my friend say" or "I heard from so and so say" then the rumours will get worse and worse with each transition through a different party.

Hearsay is always, like what they are, hearsay and nothing more. Unless you have proof, just keep your peace.

and get unduly angry about it too...attributing the blame to them, even for matters of greatest irrelevance. Totally pisses me off...
