SOLOMON Islands National Teachers Association (SINTA) has called on the Registrar of Credit Unions to investigate its subsidiary, SINTA Credit Union Ltd.
SINTA’s acting general secretary Walter Tesuatai made the call in light of increasing frustrations amongst teachers who are members to credit union.
Mr Tesuatai said the increasing frustration raised by members is serious.
“SINTA wants an immediate investigation to be carried out into its credit union,” he said.
Mr Tesuatai said those responsible must be held accountable over why the SINTA Credit Union is not serving its members well.
“From SINTA’s point of view, something is not right here.
“SINTA does not want liquidation of the Credit Union Ltd but a better solution so that the union remains to serve its members.”
He added the registrar of credit unions should convene an immediate annual general meeting.
“An annual general meeting will pave the way for members to attend and seek answers from those administering their credit union.
“The sooner, the better,” Mr Tesuatai said.
He explained SINTA as the mother body has no direct administration of the credit union so will not offer answers to queries raised by members.
But he said SINTA was concerned because this is affecting its members.
