TAZARA WORKERS REITERATE THEIR REFUSAL OF A 5 PERCENT SALARY INCREMENT AND RESUME STRIKING

TAZARA WORKERS HAVE REITERATED THEIR REFUSAL OF A 5 PERCENT SALARY INCREMENT.
MEANWHILE THE TAZARA UNION HAS SUSPENDED SOME OF ITS MEMBERS WHO ARE ALLEGED TO HAVE SIGNED THE COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT WITHOUT CONSULTING THE WORKERS AND OTHER SENIOR UNION MEMBERS WHEN THEY HELD A COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT MEETING IN TANZANIA LATE LAST MONTH.
TAZARA UNION PRESIDENT BRIAN MWALE WHO CONFIRMED THE DEVELOPMENT TO RADIO PHOENIX, SAYS THE WORKERS HAVE FURTHER DECIDED TO STAGE A STRIKE IN PROTEST OF WHAT THEY TERM AS UNFRIENDLY COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT WHICH WAS SIGNED.
MR MWALE SAYS THE WORKERS HAVE REFUSED THE FIVE PERCENT SALARY INCREMENT AND 50 YEARS RETIREMENT AGE.
HE SAYS THE WORKERS WILL ONLY RETURN TO WORK AFTER THEY ARE SATISFIED WITH WHAT THE VICE PRESIDENT WILL SAY OVER THE MATTER.
