Tanzanian bankers win the chance to organise

TanzaniaBarclays Bank has just agreed to allow the Tanzania Union of Industrial and Commercial (TUICO) to organise its employees.
This follows constant pressure from UNI and its affiliates, who have been urging Barclays to respect union rights in Tanzania.
Prior to Barclay’s announcement TUICO Deputy General Secretary, Alquin Senga, called for support to force Barclays “to open doors to union organising in Tanzania”. He also expressed concern over Barclays’ willingness to recognise staff associations instead of registered trade unions:

“Barclays wants to show an image outside that they are friendly to unions, yet they seem to have an inside arrangement to lock out unions through the use of staff associations.”

Barclays has assured African workers that obstacles towards union organising in Tanzania have been removed and TUICO is free to start recruitment.
