Time to act

Felix Chaudhary
Sunday, September 24, 2017

THE Fiji Trades Union Congress will file a complaint with the International Labour Organization (ILO) if Government continues with individual contracts for civil servants and workers in State-owned enterprises. And it is taking the issue to the streets with a march planned for Suva on October 21.

FTUC national secretary Felix Anthony said the time for negotiations was over and Government had to act on an agreement it had signed with the FTUC and Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation in Geneva in March, 2015 which allowed for collective bargaining.

He said the FTUC was preparing to file a complaint with the ILO next month for a Commission of Inquiry into Fiji because the individual contracts contravened one of the key issues agreed to by all tripartite partners.
