Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has alleged in Parliament that some of the workers of Fiji Airways whose contracts were terminated and later filed a court case were bullied into doing this.
A total of 245 former Fiji Airways cabin crew took the matter before the Employment Relations Tribunal.
They are saying they have been unfairly dismissed and have filed for redress.
Sayed-Khaiyum says some of the crew who had filed a case have now reapplied with Fiji Airways.
He says they have been told by Fiji Airways that these people were crying because they were allegedly bullied.
Parliament has approved the increased Government guarantee to Fiji Airways borrowings by increasing the existing local approved guarantee from FJ$191.1 million to FJ$241.1 million and the offshore borrowings from US$117.1 million to US$142.1 million with the total guarantee ceiling increasing from FJ$455 million to FJ$561.4 million valid until the guaranteed facilities are discharged or fully settled; and that Fiji Airways be exempted from paying a guarantee fee.
