REVSOL revenue collectors on strike

Commissioned revenue collectors of REVSOL Company, which is collecting revenue on behalf of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), have embarked on a strike action, to press home their demands for better conditions of service.

The collectors are complaining about poor salaries. According to them, the KMA was paying them 25% of whatever amount they collected in a month, before handing over the collection to REVSOL, which is said to be paying 15% commission.

The Chronicle gathered that the collectors would go to the markets, and collect the revenue alright, but refuse to account for them to the company.

Officials are tight-lipped over the issue, and would not want to talk to The Chronicle, but indications are that the collectors might resume work today hoping management of REVSOL would live their word, to increase collectors' salaries, with effect from April ending.
