Update: 12:12PM FIJIANS employed in Australia under the Seasonal Worker Program (SWP) were praised for their good performance.

While meeting the Minister for Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relation Jone Usamate in Australia this week, Akers Farm managing director Dean Akers expressed his sincere gratitude and highlighted that he is extremely happy with the performance of the 10 Fijian workers currently employed in his farm. 

"I am very appreciative of the workers´┐Ż proper work ethics and discipline. They are hardworking and very committed," Mr Akers said.

"I also wish to acknowledge the Fijian Government for the stringent selection process and fitness test conducted to potential workers in Fiji in ensuring that quality and best employees are given the opportunity to work under the seasonal worker programme."

Mr Usamate also reminded the workers on the need to work hard and maintain proper discipline and work ethics in order to open doors for more employment opportunities for other potential Fijian workers under the program in the near future.
