New Zealand workers will join international mobilising efforts for 250 Fijian ground handling workers at Nadi airport by hosting a protest today.
The workers have been locked out since before Christmas by Fiji Government-controlled Air Terminal Services.
The protest will take place at 12pm outside the Fiji High Commission in Wellington
The workers - who own 49 per cent of the company - attended an emergency shareholders meeting over mismanagement and appalling conditions at the company.
Issues raised include sexual harassment and an 11-year pay freeze. After the workers returned from the shareholders' meeting on December 16 they were locked out.
Safety standards are at risk as the replacement workforce is stretched - yesterday Air New Zealand reported damage in its airline going undetected while on the ground in Nadi.
