Fiji FIT strike averted

1:28 pm on 12 June 2007

A last minute meeting between the Fiji Institute of Technology and worker representatives averted a strike this morning by about 300 staff members of the institute.

The Fiji Times reports that staff members are against the introduction of contractual appointments mandated by the FIT council.

The meeting agreed in a Memorandum of Agreement to refer the matter to voluntary arbitration.
