There were indications late afternoon that Fiji Water and the NWU, representing the striking staff, were on the brink of issuing a joint statement signaling the end of the standoff.

However, contrary to expectations, the media was informed that discussions would persist into another day, dashing hopes of an immediate resolution.

The striking workers, stationed outside Fiji Water sites in Yaqara and Lautoka, have been vocal in their demands, advocating for improved working conditions and fair treatment.

168 staff are currently on strike.
