FNA calls off Strike

Fijivillage, August 9, 2007 As the Fiji Nursing Association called off
their strike effective from this Saturday, Interim Prime Minister,
Commodore Frank Bainimarama has welcomed the last striking trade union
for taking the step. However Commodore Bainimarama maintains that the
unions should not live in false hope that the matter should have been
referred to compulsory arbitration as soon as they went on strike. He
maintains that the door for negotiations is still open and the nurses
should now try to fully understand the current economic situation on
why the 5 percent pay cannot be restored at this stage. © 2007
