Update: 5:59PM EIGHTY-two Fijian workers will leave this week at one time to work in New Zealand under the Recognised Seasonal Employer Scheme.

According to a Government statement issued this afternoon by the Ministry of Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations, the workers received their pre-departure certificates today to work for Apata and Eastpack New Zealand under the Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) scheme.

This is the largest single number of seasonal workers to leave at one time, the Government said.

Ministry of Employment, Productivity, and Industrial Relations permanent secretary Salaseini Daunbuna presented the pre-departure certificates to the selected seasonal worker and also relayed words of encouragement.  

"You will be representing Fiji and it is our hope that you will do well in your area of work. Some of the returning seasonal workers have returned based on their good work and this can also be for your case if you stay focused and set a goal that you know you will work towards," Ms Daunabuna said. 

"Upon your good works, others will get the opportunity to participate in the RSE scheme," she said.
