Sudan Customs Administration obstructs formation of Workers Union at Soba Port

Workers at the port of Soba in Khartoum state, staged a strike in protest of the low wages and the refusal of the Sudan Customs Administration Authority to allow them to establish a union which might negotiate with the authorities on their behalf.

Workers at the port have been considered as causal day laborer's and are not eligible for health or social security benefits and in 2005 an attempt to to establish a revolving fund for themselves was stopped by the authorities. .
