WELLINGTON, New Zealand (RNZI, Aug. 8) – A two-day strike involving employees of the social security and welfare office in French Polynesia has been settled.

The terms of the settlement include a 2 percent pay rise every two and a half years.

The labor tribunal is due to decide this week whether the sacking of 260 former employees of the president’s office was legal.

The new government, which came to power less than two months ago, claimed that it was not obliged to honor their contracts.

But a panel found last month that this amounted to a dismissal, making the 260 people eligible for compensation.
