The Fiji Trades Union Congress has accepted sixteen new affiliates from the Fiji Islands Council of Trade Unions and has also nominated two representatives of Fiji Islands Council of Trade Unions to the Executive Board of the Fiji Trade Union Congress.
The two representatives are Netani Druavesi who is the President of the Fijian Teachers Association and Kamlesh Kumar from the Transport Workers Union.
FTUC National Secretary Felix Anthony says they have also resolved to call a special conference in February next year to amend the constitution which will allow the inclusion of the representatives as principle office bearers of Fiji Trade Union Congress.
Representatives of the two organisations met yesterday to make the final preparations to merge the two organizations.
