Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The first Trade Union to be officially recognised in Nyasaland was the Transport and Allied Workers' Union (TAWU) in 1949. The Nyasaland Trades Union Congress (NTUC) was founded in 1956. Trade Unions suffered a great set-back during the State of Emergency in 1959, most active leaders were detained and for many months TU activity were almost unknown. In 1960 the TAWU disaffiliated from the NTUC, and established the National Council of Labour in direct opposition.
The Central African Examiner was published in Salisbury, Rhodesia from 1957-1966.
