It seems that fast_strptime considers the input string to be specified in GMT and uses its tz argument to bring the specified time relative to the timezone of the tz argument.

> "12/03/16 12:00" %>% strptime("%d/%m/%y %H:%M", tz="Europe/Zurich")
[1] "2016-03-12 12:00:00 CET"


> "12/03/16 12:00" %>% fast_strptime("%d/%m/%y %H:%M", tz="Europe/Zurich")

I am running R 3.2.3 and lubridate 1.5.0.
