Officials at the ILO are said to have gone 'berserk' after the regime's introduction of the draconian decree to curb worker and union rights in Fiji.
Coupfourpointfive has been told that since last week, the ILO has held several meetings to discuss Fiji and list possible actions it could take.
The deteriorating trade union rights situation in Fiji has been under consideration by the ILO for some time.
As first reported by this blog, the Education International and FICTU affiliate, the Fijian Teachers Association first complained to ILO in July, 2009, followed by further complaints.
A decision to send an ILO Mission to Fiji was made in 2010 after the Governing Body of the ILO at its 309th session in November, considered these complaints.
Among other complaints in that report, the Committee considered complaints against the dismissal of Tevita Koroi, the president of the Fijian Teachers Association, for making a statement at the launch of the Movement for Democracy in Fiji and the arrest and detention of FICTU general secretary, Attar Singh, the vandalising of his home and car and two arson attempts on Mr. Singh's union office in Suva.
The Committee also noted complaints on restrictions on union meetings, freedom of movement of trade unionists and restriction on union's right to express opinions through the press.
The ILO delegation are preparing to depart for Fiji and are expected to touch down in Nadi tomorrow afternoon.
