Lutua maintains striking nurses won’t accept 1% pay restoration

Fijivillage, August 7, 2007 The Fiji Nursing Association General
Secretary Kuini Lutua maintains that they did not breach the Public
Order Act as she awaits charges to be laid against her and 19 other
striking nurses. Speaking to Village News last night Kuni Lutua said
they have been told they will be charged, however they believe they did
not do anything illegal. Lutua remains adamant that they will not
accept the one percent pay restoration and will not return to work.
Lutua and the other members who were standing outside the Cabinet
office at Government buildings with placards were rounded up by police
and military officers and taken to Nasova where they were interviewed.
