Railway workers in Swaziland have won a court fight to be allowed to ballot for strike action.
The Industrial Court of Appeal made the ruling after Swaziland Railways tried to block the Public and Private Sector Transport Workers Union from going ahead.
The victory follows years of wrangling between workers and management over a pay claim. The union wants a 15 percent rise across the board and a 50 percent increase in allowances.
