160 workers of the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort have resumed work from today as the resort is slowly beginning to open up again.
They are on reduced hours for now.
General Manager Darren Shaw says that the numbers are expected to increase as they continue to open other areas of the property and as business grows.
Shaw says this month they are catering directly for locals to help stimulate the domestic tourism market.
He says they are re-opening by launching the “Love our Locals” campaign which offers specials for locals with the $175 per night bure offer.
Shaw says they are excited to announce that the first weekend was sold out and bures are selling fast for the remainder of the month.
He adds they generally employ 420 permanent staff for full operations and all of them have been receiving some payment until now.
Shaw adds the rest of the employees are on leave without pay until business resumes.
