The chairman of the Fiji Wages Council, Father Kevin Barr, has repeated an earlier call for the FTUC and Fiji Islands Council of Trade Unions (FICTU) to consider coming together under one umbrella in the interest of better addressing workers’ issues.
“We have an unprecedented opportunity for the two organisations to come together and speak with one voice and I feel that is something that both organisations should work towards,” he said.
He was speaking at the Fiji Trades Unions Congress 44th Biennial Conference in Nadi on Friday 11 May.
Kevin Barr was also scheduled to address the National Federation Party’s working committee on social Justice issues when it met on Saturday.
