Strike stops the publication of Fiji newspaper

5:15 pm on 18 November 2002

Employees of Fiji's Daily Post newspaper have gone on strike in a bid to improve working conditions, preventing the publication of today's edition.

About 60 staff have joined the Fiji Public Service Association in a protest also aimed at the removal of the publisher and editor, Yashwant Gaunder.

A union leader says the stoppage will only end once all demands are met.

The publication of tomorrow's paper is in doubt.
