A two-weeks notice has been given to the 549 Ministry of Health workers who have yet to submit their position description report.

Minister for health Dr Neil Sharma told FijiLive all these workers have to submit their PD’s or otherwise their pay will be deducted.

"They will get a final warning and they have to give an explanation as to why they have not submitted their reports yet,” he said.

Dr Sharma said a position description report is a report that workers have to submit to their supervisors in order for their supervisors to know what their responsibilities are.

“Apart from submitting their PD’s they also have to submit their confidentiality report which will enable the workers to get promoted,” said Dr Sharma.

“We have been informing them for the past three years to submit their report but still they never submit it and as a result we do not know who is suppose to do what and this brings in inefficiency,” he said.

He said these workers are not confined to one group but includes doctors, nurses, lab technicians, cleaners and other administration staff.

“This should be a lesson to all civil servants as government is keen to have efficient people working and this is what we want for our ministry,” he said.

“We have been patient, kind but now we have to take a stand and tell them enough is enough, perform or move out,” he said.

“We have a lot of unemployed people out there looking for work and we cannot tolerate this behavior anymore, we want to right size the civil service,” he said.

He also said these types of attitude by the workers have shown them that people do not care about their work.
