Source: Fiji police ready to support international union action

UNHAPPY FORCE: Inhumane conditions driving senior officers to consider walking off the job.


TARGET: Air Pacific and Qantas.
Information sent to Coupfourpointfive shows police officers are now looking at walking off the job if industrial action takes place in Fiji as some trade unions are hoping.

An inside source says the escalation of the current union campaign to get offshore affiliates involved in planned industrial action against Qantas and Air Pacific, is being monitored and followed closely with interest, by police officers.

Fiji's police have long been unhappy with the shabby working conditions and lack of resources, including having to dip into their own pockets for basic work  things like paper and uniforms.

A source says some 30 senior officers above the rank of inspector (IP) have resolved that if the unions will go on strike,"we together with 50% policemen from all divisions will join them to show our support and voice concern."


The source says officers are made to work 12 hours shifts with no protective equipment and are also required to do other shifts without any allowance. 

He says the police also continue to work with  no standard equipment and without even stationery for police files. Police officers are also forced to buy their own footwear and uniform, pay for their case files photocopy with failure resulting in disciplinary action from senior officers.

The Police should be planning their own assault and arrest against the Regime and its supporters in conjunction with Soldiers sympathetic to their cause !

The time for dialogue with these criminals is over.

Nurses are about to be put on 12 hour shifts and they are not going to be paid overtime anymore.

This is extremely disruptive to family life not to mention that patient care will be compromised.

We have OHS laws and laws to protect the public from overtired workers that may compromise the safety of fellow citizens.

Kai Viti you must be Baini for sure, what bloody development your on about? Recently we have had only insignificant token developments on our roads,which is to appease people who cant see the blatant pillaging of the public purse by Aiass and Baini. Aiass and Bainida are setting up their families for riches, while the people of Fiji all getting duped by their lies. Meanwhile, only the current and future tax payers of Fiji will pay all the corrupt developments and scams for generations to come. Thumbs Up for Democracy!

The expressions on the faces of the two up at the front say it all. Fiji has gone from a laughing stock to outright lunacy. And the sad part is, the people of Fiji are not doing anything about it. There's just talk and no substance. The army and the police are effectively one body, controlled by a freak Vuaka and his freak son Aiyarsehole. Come on people of Fiji, start an uprising and you will realise help from outside will come in. See what happened in Libya, people power will oust this freak Vuaka and he will face justice.

Please stop your irritating comments.

If you have something constructive
then blog.

Why do you have to use so many alias (Kai Suva etc).

The police took an oath to protect the people, but that is now clearly only for show. Like COMPOL they only good at looking pretty in uniform. The honour of the past heroes of the police force are saddly being over run by the gutless self-preserving COMPOL and the actions of his idiotic senior officers. God save Fiji.
