The Fiji Public Services Association is one of the largest union organisations in the country boasting more than 3000 members today.
FPSA was founded in 1943 with links to the Association of European Civil Servants which was formed back in 1921.
The FPSA has a long proud history of fighting for the rights of workers in the country. In 1973, the union, led by Mahendra Chaudhry led a three-day civil servants strike that challenged the government’s grievances and disputes machinery.
Ten years later the union shut down the airports for two days over the cost of living adjustment.
