On the one hand we have a government which is trying everything possible to advance the country socially, politically and economically without much foreign help and on the other we have trade unionists who are hell bent in getting Fiji’s preferential trade treatments cancelled.
These are the same trade unionists who wish to form a political party for the next elections.
If figures are to be believed then 15,000 people are set to lose their jobs as a result of the move and another 75,000 people will be indirectly affected.
If that happens it will be interesting to see which way those 90,000 votes go come the elections.
It is of interest also to note that these same unionists had no gripe against the government when they were serving on respective statutory boards as government appointees.
They only seem to have awoken to the workers’ rights after their dismissal from boards and when their relationships with the Prime Minister have gone sour.
Everybody seems to have an axe to grind and then use that axe to chops the government’s progress. I hope the workers realise early which way they are being led by their unionists.
