Eda Ranu staff are strongly against the merging of Eda Ranu and Water PNG.
Staff say the government must explain why the merger. Staff also presented a petition to the Management of Eda Ranu to bring to the board for consideration.
A member of the Senior management Team says details of the merger was not made public.
Eda Ranu staff has presented a petition to the Management earlier.
Representatives say majority are against the option to merge with Water PNG. They are also unsure of their benefits and working contracts.
The National Executive Council decision will see Eda Ranu and Water PNG come under an entity to provide water and sewerage services around the country. The plans to merge have left more questions than answers in the workforce.
For now, Eda Ranu staff say they will wait until the Board deliberates on their petition before employees make their next move. Eda Ranu employs over 500 men and women in different fields.
For now, there are no threats of shutting down the water system in the City.
