THE Australian Council of Trade Unions has condemned the interrogation of a group of Fijian trade unionists by police and pledged that they stood with the Fijian workers.

ACTU President Michele O’Neil said the recent arrest of Fiji Trades Union Congress general secretary Felix Anthony was a “bare-faced attack on the rights of working people”.

“The ACTU utterly condemns the arbitrary detention of working people’s representatives in our Pacific neighbour Fiji,” she said in a statement on Wednesday.
