Tunisian busworkers strike over security

Bus drivers and conductors operating Line 23 from the Tunis Transport Company (TRANSTU) continued their strike yesterday, to demand “mobile security guards” to protect them against repeated attacks. About 50 workers operate the 25 buses on the route.
Workers from other regions have also agreed to join the strike – namely those operating the lines serving Manouba’s suburbs and Lines 90, 91, 92, and 61. 
During the last two weeks various people have tried to prevent Line 23 from operating in protest at its infrequency and the repeated delays.
