Trade unionist and former member of the Board of the National Housing Trust (NHT) Vincent Morrison, is opposed to the proposal for the merger of the entity with the Housing Agency of Jamaica (HAJ).
According to Morrison the move is a "retrograde" step.
RJR News reported that the Special Commission which reviewed the operations of the Housing Trust has proposed the merger.
This is among several recommendations coming out of the Commission's report on the strategic review of the NHT.
Morrison has warned of risks with the proposed merger.
"When you look at the balance sheet of the Housing Agency of Jamaica, it is a disaster. If the decision goes to merge the entities, it will be the slide of the Housing Trust...... the Housing Trust was formed to deliver services, housing solutions, to Jamaican workers. It is not the right thing to merge at this time," he said.
