Group wants pay

WHILE the 11 Form Seven students of Labasa Sangam College are celebrating the opportunity of consideration given by the Fiji National University's College for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences their exam supervisors are demanding for their pay from the Ministry of Education.

The group of exam supervisors of various schools in Labasa who preferred anonymity claimed they have not been paid for supervising the Fiji School Leaving Certificate and Fiji Seventh Form examinations in November.

They said they have grown tired of asking the ministry for their pay as their calls to the ministry for enquiries continue to be passed around by ministry staff. The group claims that some of them have been paid half their normal wages.

Permanent secretary for Education Doctor Brij Lal said they were unaware of such a situation and that the examiners needed to approach them with their grievances so that they would be made aware.

"Claim forms need to be filled and submitted to the exams office so that they can be processed and they be paid their dues," he said.

Attempts to get comments from Acting Minister for Education Commander Viliame Naupoto were unsuccessful.
