Your choice matters

THE Fiji Public Service Association is keeping its fingers crossed that all Fijian voters will make sensible and democratic decisions at the upcoming general elections.

This was the message by the FPSA general secretary Rajeshwar Singh at the association's AGM at the Novotel, Suva Lami Bay yesterday.

"You will be among voters who will select a new government in a few short months," he said.

"Your show of support will reinforce FPSA's vision in helping other stakeholders to build a society free from poverty, free from discrimination and free from injustice.

"We wish to achieve equality which trade unions have worked long to attain. Can this vision become a reality? Yes, if we can work hard enough to realise it."

Mr Singh said the association had lost many of its members.

"We lost many of our members in 20ll, about 1000 plus and then in 2013 we lost 540 members again from the National Fire Authority and Airports Fiji Limited.

"Right now we have only 3119 members compared to the 4000 members we had in 2011."
