Fiji hotel workers get paid despite illegal strike - report

3:08 pm on 3 January 2014

Fiji media reports say the management of the Sheraton hotels in the Nadi area has agreed to pay workers who were on strike on New Year's Eve despite the strike being declared illegal.

The Fiji Sun says within two weeks, the management will sort out all the grievances, which relate to pay and maternity leave.

The paper says should a resolution fail, the workers have said they will strike again.

About 300 employees took part in Tuesday's strike, which the labour minister declared as unlawful because it breached Section 175 of the Employment Relations.

It is not known if action will be against those who broke the law.
