Fiji’s Confederation of Public Sector Unions has given fourteen days to the Public Service Commission to respond to its demand for a one hundred and ten percent pay rise for all civil servants.

The Confederation claims it has cited a circular and spoken to some Permanent Secretaries who’ve confirmed receiving the pay rise.

Fiji Public Service Association, General Secretary, Rajeshwar Singh claims the three disciplinary heads have received a pay rise of 221 thousand 894 dollars per annum from 1st September.

Singh says, the Confederation has always based civil service pay rise on relativity.

“If the Permanent Secretary gets one hundred ten percent pay rise his deputy should also get one hundred and ten percent pay rise and down the line that is relativity. Otherwise there will be pay discrimination.” Singh says, they aren’t ruling out the possibility of industrial action.

“We will cross the bridge when we come to it. We are not discounting anything.”

Members of the Confederation are the Fijian Teachers Association, Fiji Public Service Association and the Fiji Teachers Union.

The personal secretary to PSC Permanent Secretary told FBC News, Parmesh Chand will issue a statement on the Confederation’s log of claims.
