ILO says no change to rules on fact finding mission to Fiji

ILO says no change to rules on fact finding mission to Fiji

Updated 22 November 2012, 18:18 AEST

The International Labour Organisation has confirmed it will only send a fact finding mission back to Fiji under the original conditions.

It wants to investigate the situation of trade unions and workers rights, following complaints from the country's peak union bodies.

A mission from the UN body was in Fiji recently for only a day before it was kicked out by the coup installed military government, who wanted tighter rules on who the officials should meet.

The interim government has invited the ILO to send another mission, but Professor Paul van der Heijden, the President of the organisation's committee on freedom of association, tells Bruce Hill there won't be any changes to the way they do their job if they are allowed back into Fiji.
