SUPPORTING FIJI WORKERS SINCE 1944
Since 1944, National Union of Workers has fought for the rights of workers in Fiji. Today, we stand strong with 5,118 members across 25 companies and a range of industry sectors. Our mission is to achieve decent work for all. Decent work sums up the simple aspirations of people in their working lives, their aspirations for opportunity & income, rights at work, adequate pay and conditions of work, a voice, recognition, fairness, equality, security, stability and respect.
