Will the sugar workers strike?

Felix Anthony has thrown down the gauntlet to the regime by threatening a sugar workers strike. He says they haven’t had a pay rise for seven years. The question now is will Khaiyum push Bainimarama to invoke the Essential National Industries (Employment) Decree to crush the plans for a strike? There’s no doubt a strike would be a national disaster, but the use of the much hated decree could also be a disaster. The international reaction would be swift and could include sanctions by the USA to deny duty free entry to our products. Look out Fiji Water.
