Fiji: End the lockout at Nadi Airport (LabourStart)

January 4, 2018

Workers at Fiji’s international airport have been locked out since before Christmas because they dared to challenge management.

The company that provides ground services at the airport is owned mostly by the Fijian government, but 49% of the shares are owned by the workers.

For that reason, the workers tried to raise issues at shareholder meetings, including not receiving any pay rise for the last 11 years.

But after the meeting on 16 December, where they raised issues about the company, they were locked out.

The International Transport Workers Federation is calling for a worldwide protest against the lockout and has launched this campaign on LabourStart.

Please take a minute to show your support for the workers in Fiji:
