An employment contract for ministers of religion is the only way for foreign professionals to work in the profession of minister of religion. It seems to me that this is a very confusing political approach to regional labour markets and I wonder whether it is sustainable given the different programmes and conditions. Thirdly, the PLS is also well supported. The Pacific Labour Facility, funded by dfAT, supports employers in respect of the employer status approved by the PLS, helps facilitate connections with potential Pacific employees, and provides social assistance to workers as they mobilize. Other collective agreements are not as well endowed. Note: Further discussions are planned with representatives of the milk, snow, hospitality and meat sectors on their tariff proposals. Similarly, leave without pay related to a deficiency in operations is not permitted without the prior consent of the Ministry. . . .
