Sharat Yadev, 38, was among the many Air Terminal Services Fiji Limited staff members who received their identification card at the company office in Nadi yesterday.

She joins other employees who will return to their posts from today.

Mr Yadev is a goods despatch officer with the Catering Department and has been with the company for the last 14 years.

“It is a good feeling to be back at work as I received my ID today and look forward to start work tomorrow (today),” he said.

“My wife is also expecting our second child later this week. I am lot happier compared to last year.”

He drives trucks which carries meals prepared by ATS destined for inbound and outbound flights.

Mr Yadev said his work involved a crucial process where they provide international service to guests that travel by air.

Simione Momovalu, 36, who has been part of the ATS family for the last four years said, “I feel so happy to be locked out for 35 days and I was thinking what will happens if the lock out continued”.

Limiva Kubu, 43, of Nawaka, Nadi serving her 22nd year with the cabin catering department said, “I thank the Lord that I will return to work after 35 days, I thank the ATSET”.

Litia Dilo, of Nadroga served over 10 years said, “I feel happy and proud to return to work and the executives to be with us”.

Federated Airline Staff Association president Sai Vulawalu Ledua said the manager human resource Richard Donaldson visited the staff in the morning and briefed them on the procedures.

“They visited us and said it’s okay to go in, they have given us blank sheets for us to sign in a sign out considering that we have been here since the morning,” she said.

“Those rostered in the afternoon will sign off and take the rest of the day off. This will be without the loss of pay.

“There will be no loss of pay, we showed our solidarity. We are ready to return to work tomorrow as staff members are being issued their ID cards.”

Ms Ledua added the staff will follow their roster from today.
