AS the 2018 sugarcane harvest and crushing season draws close to the end, there is good news for Fiji Sugar Corporation (FSC) workers.
FSC chief executive officer Graham Clark has informed employees that the FSC board has approved a 3 per cent cost of living adjustment (COLA) beginning January 1, 2019.
He confirmed to this newspaper that the 3 per cent COLA was for all FSC workers with the exception of the executive management team and expatriates who made up 1 per cent of the total workforce.
The pay increment comes in the wake of a 5 per cent pay increase awarded to employees in December last year.
The FSC said it remained committed to ensuring its workers were rewarded for their efforts.
