Amnesty International condemns removal of Fiji worker's rights

Amnesty International has called on the illegal regime to repeal a decree that would drastically restrict workers' rights and to immediately cease the harassment of union leaders.

The human rights watch dog group says the regime's new decree on employment laws, violate international labour law and Fiji’s human rights obligations.

"The Essential National Industries (Employment) Decree published in the government Gazette, would take away nearly all collective bargaining rights, severely curtail the right to strike, ban overtime payments and void existing collective agreements for workers in key sectors of the economy including sugar, aviation and tourism. 

"The Decree also authorises employers in government-designated enterprises to dictate working conditions while denying their workers the right to a voice through independent unions."

It says the regime claims the measures are needed to ensure the development, viability and sustainability of industries that are essential to the economy, but the best way to achieve these goals is by respecting the fundamental human rights and dignity of those whose labour underpins these enterprises. 

"As it is, Fiji is failing in its duty to deliver decent work to its people. Forty percent of Fijians are reported to live below the poverty line of $1.25 a day, and more than half of those in full time employment earn wages below the poverty line. Independent trade unions are sorely needed.

"Fundamental human rights are at stake, including the right to freedom of association and assembly, and the right to organise. Amnesty International stands steadfast in solidarity with workers in Fiji and the Fiji labour movement in their struggle to defend their rights."

The illegal regime seems to be doing all it can to remain outcast so it can continue its plunder of Fiji's resources. How is this building a better Fiji? Vore and Aiyarse hidden agenda to rip off the entire nation and abscond with fortune. Real pressure must be applied by respectable nations to bring about positive change. It's too late to save the country from ruin.

David Pflieger of Air Pacific helped AG draft this decree. ILO needs to extradite him to the Hague where he can be tried for crimes to humanity!
