The standard, as we’ve known it, throughout government agencies and departments and for decades, is rather poor. It’s about time many of us Fijians wake up to the realisation that there is a need to lift standards to a productive and efficient level.

Expression Of Appreciation

The Rewa Tikina Development Committee wishes to expresses its sincere gratitude to the National Director of Habitat For Humanity of Fiji and its staff for their significant development assistance which has helped to transform the lives of Tavuya villagers in Rewa. It has taken three years for their project to be completed.

The project includes safe access for the physically disabled, proper washroom facilities and water supply and homes for the needy.

No one has been left behind.

I also acknowledge the generosity of all members of Community For Communities, (Sydney) for helping to make it happen.

We are humbly privileged that through your collective efforts the villagers have been empowered by the assistance which has allowed them to enjoy the basic necessities about life.

Once again, VINAKA VAKALEVU Habitat For Humanity of Fiji and C for C (Sydney) for your collaborative efforts and contribution. The Tikina of Rewa looks forward to more engagements with you in the future.

Teacher contracts

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

Why should teachers be spared work contracts when the majority of Fijians work on contract basis?

Ro Teimumu Kepa’s statement that teachers were like beggars who could not be choosers is a rather lame statement to make, considering the standard of teachers and teaching these days.

Teachers should count themselves lucky getting three to five-year contracts.

In the private sector work contracts range from one to three years with the majority on two and three-year contracts.

Basically, an employment contract is an agreement between the employer and employee, with conditions and requirements of the job and covers all of the terms between the two parties.

The only reason people are up in arms about contracts is simply because they can hardly keep up with their side of the bargain. The contract is there to protect the employer as well in that employees carry out their duties as required by the employer in order to keep up with or lift the standard of service.

Like the private sector, all government personnel ought to be on work contract basis.

The standard, as we’ve known it, throughout government agencies and departments and for decades, is rather poor. It’s about time many of us Fijians wake up to the realisation that there is a need to lift standards to a productive and efficient level.

Contractual basis is the only way for that to happen, period!

Airport departure

Joe Smith, Pacific Harbour

Too much confusion exists at our airports.

Airline staff do advise passengers about on-hand luggage items that are allowed on-board. However, internal airport security staff say differently.

They seize cough mixtures, 50gm liquids sealed in plastic, tooth paste, gel, etc telling passengers they are not allowed to carry those items with them.

Could the chief executive officer of Customs and airlines provide a detailed listing of items that passengers should not carry with them?
