Unionist ready for politics

Dawn Gibson

TRADE unionist Attar Singh yesterday said goodbye to his colleagues and his career at the Communication, Mining and General Workers Union to join Fiji's heated political realm.

Mr Singh was the general secretary for the CMGWU and will today also resign from his post as general secretary of the Fiji Islands Council of Trade Unions at a meet he will attend in Nadi.

He announced these developments yesterday at a press conference at the union's office in Suva.

"These decisions have resulted from our discussions over several meetings at this union and FICTU on the approach to be adopted to restore worker rights and dignity so severely violated and undermined by the prevailing decrees and anti-worker decisions," Mr Singh said.

"I want to thank all union members throughout Fiji who supported me in my long union career spanning three decades and undertake to continue the struggle for workers rights and decent jobs to the next level."
