    Kahama.The Africa Barick Gold (ABG) has been forced to close one of its mines, Bulyanhulu in Kahama District, after its workers went on strike to protest the new pension law.Production at the mine stopped on Wednesday after many workers decided to down tools, reports from the gold mine said.

    Workers across the country have been protesting the new section in the law which outlaws withdrawal of contributions until a worker reaches retirement age.The company was forced to halt production after engineers working in the underground shaft refused to continue working demanding the authorities to listen to their concerns on the changes on the pension law.

    The changes in the law were endorsed by Parliament last April. Basically, the law was amended in order to bring on board the Social Security Regulatory Authority (SSRA). But in addition, it also outlawed the withdrawal of benefits.

    The ABG public relations officer, Mr Necta Foya, confirmed yesterday that operations were halted for 48 hours in the underground and most of other sections directly involved in production.

    But he noted that the administration and management sections continued with their activities as usual. He noted that workers would be summoned and those who will be ready to continue working under the new conditions imposed by the law would continue working.
