A Fiji judge has ordered an end to the month-long lockout of workers at the country’s main international airport.

More than 200 service and maintenance workers have been suspended without pay since December, when they attended a meeting to discuss grievances with their employer, ATS.

ATS said the gathering amounted to illegal strike action, and would only allow workers to return if they signed a letter admitting guilt.

But a court this afternoon said ATS did not follow due process, giving the company 48 hours to allow the workers to return to their jobs.

A spokesperson for the employees, Vili Finau, said the judge also ordered that all pay and entitlements from the 16th of December be restored.
