In July Kuini Lutua and Jolame Vosa from the National Union of Factory Workers (NUFCW) joined union and community activists in New Zealand for a week long training workshop on the Living Wage Movement.  UnionAID arranged the visit with funding from MFAT to introduce Fiji unions to the skills and strategies behind the very successful living wage concept.
