The Tanzania Plantations and Agricultural Workers Union (TPAWU) have sued Nyanza Cooperative Union (NCU) at the Commission for Mediation and Arbitration (CMA) for failure to pay a decade's salaries to its workers.

NCU owes its workers Sh1.2 billion in outstanding salaries. Two cases had been filed at the commission, one involving 160 union workers and another involving 15 other workers of the same, a CMA official, who is presiding over both cases, Mwanaidi Mmbaga, confirmed.

Mmbaga said NCU management has been served with one summons for the first case, but failed to appear at the commission on February 10, this year, and that another summons for the second case required the union management to appear at the commission on March 2, this year.
