Workers told of rights

Salaseini Vosamana
Saturday, November 17, 2012

A GROUP of civil servants and workers from corporate companies in Labasa attended a seminar organised by the Fiji Trades Union Congress at the Hotel Takia yesterday.

At the seminar they were reminded of their rights under the Employment Relations Promulgation (ERP).

FTUC president Daniel Urai said the event was an ongoing program aimed at refreshing workers' knowledge of the ERP.

"The ERP is a law or guideline that governs workers and we want them to know that such laws exist for their sake," he said.

"Whenever there is a political disturbance in the country, workers are the first ones to be affected and they usually face the full brunt of it.

"At least with this law, workers will know their rights and what they can ask for," Mr Urai said.

He said it was only proper that workers practised their rights given the high cost of living and poverty increase in the country. The seminar was held at the hotel's conference room.
