The Fiji Public Service Association was delighted to inform their F.N.U members, that at the last F.N.U Council meeting that was held on the 29th December, 2015 at the Nasinu Campus their Association through the General  Secretary was able to successfully argue a case for a 5% pay rise across the board to be effective from the 1st January 2016. A new Performance Appraisal System is also to be implements from next year so that above average performers are recognized for their hard work and benefit monetarily by earning additional increments.

Members were informed that it was not easy to convince the employers for pay increase under current austerity measures implemented by organizations particularly those under government funding.

It is absolutely disappointing that many non-members benefit from our hard work and sustained fight to win pay rise, who then enjoy the privilege without any guilt. It is time that those free riders be identified and be told to join the union and not to ride freely on the backs of their colleagues who are paying subscription to keep the union movement viable. The management is already saying that non-members are happy without asking for a raise. The time will come that these non-members would be the reason to block further progress in pay increase and other benefits.

Future improvement to your terms and conditions of service will depend on a solid union membership in FNU otherwise it would be a goodbye to yearly expectations.

The Association is happy and satisfied that it has been able to single handedly win a pay rise for its members and for other sister unions in its bid to protect the interest of union members.

FPSA hopes that non-members will exercise their better judgement and join the colleague who are in union, without any further delay.

Wishing you all a Happy and Prosperous 2016.

In Solidarity
