E01 - Discovering Trade Unions: A Tanzanian Perspective

For over 90 years, Trade Unions have played a vital role in safeguarding and advocating for the rights of workers in Tanzania. These unions serve as a crucial link between employees, employers, and the government to ensure improved working conditions and the well-being of all workers. Despite their commendable efforts, it is evident that the hard work of union members has not received the recognition and appreciation it deserves.
In this inaugural episode of Kazi the Podcast, we delve into the origins of Trade Unions, tracing their roots back to Europe and their evolution in Tanzania. We explore their significant contributions and their growing relevance in today's rapidly changing work environment, shaped by technological advancements.
