Changing of the Guards

As most residents would have known by now, TSS Security Services has departed. The changeover was at 8:00 AM today. For the time being security services are being provided by DRB-Hicom’s auxiliary police unit. GCD will appoint a new security company in due course. We hope the new ones will be as good as TSS.

In my earlier post I said I wouldn’t even bet RM1 on TSS staying. That was easy because I always felt that if TSS were able to find other assignments that can utilise the 27 guards, and at a higher hourly rate as well, they will be gone. Hence the last-minute attempt to entice them to stay with a huge cheque was to no avail. You can’t keep jerking people all the time.  With demand for trained Nepalese guards outstripping supply, it was only a matter of time when enough is enough.  There is no joy, however, in being proven right. I am deeply disappointed that this had to happen. How could GCD have read the cards so wrongly?

Security is probably the most important consideration for all residents in a community like ours. Yet GCD didn’t react on the 29th day of the notice,  they waited until the very last day of a 30-day notice period. And TSS wouldn’t stay. They can’t as they have accepted other jobs. This is gross mismanagement.

Ashraf and Residents

At the change over this a morning, a number of residents came by and we had a very frank discussion with Ashraf Osman about the ills in Glenmarie
Cove. I hope he will take stock of the comments made on how he can begin to turn things around. Removing deadwood is one of the recommendations and I am not talking about the trees.

Meanwhile do go over to the community’s Facebook page and vote in the poll being conducted by Suzanne Lee Das.

    Hi, anyone know why the TSS removed? Do the management discuss with GCROA before action taken? Who are the BOSS now, resident or GCD?
