The type of mindset various trade unions in Fiji have is not helping the government to achieve its respective reforms says Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Speaking during the Certified Practicing Accountant Fiji Branch Congress 2011 at the Sheraton Denarau today Sayed-Khaiyum said these types of mindsets are in-fact not helping the government in its progress at all.

He said trade unions in Fiji are only present in active manner whenever there is government presence in any particular area.

Sayed-Khaiyum said an area where most expectations take place like Fiji National Provident Fund (FNPF) is not paid is where trade unions are present.

“They don’t help the workers out,” he said.

“I find it very hard to digest today that trade union officials drive BMW X5 without helping the workers.”

He said it’s the workers who need the most attention.
