Fiji interim administration says no pay for strikers

Radio New Zealand International, August 9, 2007 Fiji’s interim prime
minister says public servants on strike and absent from work should not
live in the false hope of getting paid. Commodore Bainimarama made the
comment after the general secretary of the Fiji Nurses Association,
Kuini Lutua, claimed that the deduction of strikers’ pay was illegal.
Commodore Bainimarama says Mrs Lutua should not mislead her members
because the basic understanding is that people work to get paid.
Otherwise, he says, everybody would stay away on strike at home and
expect to get paid. ... Fiji
