Fiji’s Wages Council has received some verbal objections from workers stating that the proposed wage increase is not sufficient.

This was confirmed to FijiLive by Council chair Father Kevin Barr.

The Council had proposed a 10-15 percent wage increase for the ten employment sectors which includes the printing trades, wholesale and retail trades, hotel and catering trades, garment industry, sawmilling and logging industry, road transport, building and civil and electrical engineering trades, manufacturing industry, mining and quarrying industry and security services.

“Some written ones are from employers raising objections to the increase and other verbal objections are from workers saying the increases are not sufficient,” said Father Barr.

He also said the extension of the submission dates by the council was due to the date of printing of the Government Gazette and there was nothing sinister in the delay.
