We are inviting all Pacific Island members to become involved in our Pasefika Fono. Our Fono is made up of Pacifica workers in FIRST Union. 

We meet other Pacific Island members and delegates and talk about issues which affect us, promote more participation of Pacific workers in our union and campaign on issues affecting workers, like loan sharks

FIRST Union Pasefika Fono - who we are

Our Fono started with strong active Pacific Island members passionate about the development and education of our workers. 

Our main goal is to help Pacific Island workers join and be active in our union.   We develop understanding of cultural differences, and build bridges with other cultures and employers.   We also meet with Pacific Island Members of Parliament and local leaders, to talk about issues for Pacific Island workers.

We hold courses and activities in line with our core Pacific values.   These include Fono education days, Annual General Fono Conference, CTU Advanced Fono, Hui/Fono conference, activity days, workers day of action and Sports Day. fono3

We welcome your involvement in our Pasefika Fono!

Campaigning

We campaign on issues affecting pacific workers.

Recently we have been campaigning against loan sharks: companies that make money by ripping off vulnerable people.

We have been calling for tighter rules for loan sharks, including putting a cap on interest they charge.
