TCF Council of Fiji welcomes deferment

Feb '09
The TCF Council of Fiji welcomes the decision by Interim Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama to defer the wage increases by five months in light of the depressed economic climate and downturn in export markets.

This decision will help to avoid further job losses in the industry. We agree with the Interim Prime Minister that Fiji needs to increase investment and economic activity so that more jobs can be created. First step to poverty alleviation is to target achievement of full employment in Fiji.

While the wage increase deferment is welcome news for the TCF industry, we remain committed to working together with our workers to find ways to cope with these difficult times. After all, it's the hardworking 5000-odd workers, most of whom are women, who are making a significant contribution to Fiji's economy. The TCF industry is very important to poverty alleviation in Fiji as it mainly employs the “working poor” who would otherwise have very few, if not, any alternative means of earning an income.
