The Fiji Trades Union Congress has called upon all workers who have grievances discontinued by the Essential National Industries (ENI) Decree or the Employment Relations Promulgation Amendment Decree 2011 to get in touch with their unions or the Ministry of Labour to have their matters reinstated.

FTUC General Secretary Felix Anthony said: “Any worker who was terminated during the period of the ENI Decree must get in touch with their unions or the Ministry to make an application to the Arbitration Court for compensation.”

There would be a 28-day time limit from the date the matter became law and that is likely to end around the 11th or 12th of this month.

In a statement yesterday Mr Anthony called on all unions that were deregistered to apply immediately for registration.  Edited by Paula Tuvuki
