TAZARA: Train operations in Tanzania to resume after strike action!

The Tanzania-Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA) has informed the public that, following the decision of the Labour Division of the High Court of Tanzania on 26 May 2014 to declare the strike by the Tanzanian employees of TAZARA as illegal, passenger cross-border operations between Zambia and Tanzania resume today (30 May 2014). Freight operations between the two countries have already commenced.
The unionised workers of TAZARA in Tanzania withdrew their labour on 12 May 2014, demanding unpaid salaries for February (in some cases) and for March and April 2014. As a consequence, the railway suspended both freight and passenger operations between Dar es Salaam and Tunduma.
