National strike by Public Sector Unions

A national strike by the Confederation of public sector unions looks imminent as the Union and the government remains firm on their stance on the five percent pay cut and reduction of the retirement age in the civil service.

Public Service Commission Chairman Rishi Ram said the unions must change their stance on certain issues as another round of talks is expected with the Fiji Public Service Association, Fiji Teachers Union and the Fiji Nurses Association.
