Lecturers to go on strike starting midnight

- in Education, News

Lecturers will kick off their strike at midnight as the government has not tabled an offer to counter their 2017-21 Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The Universities Academic Staff Union accuses the Inter-public Universities Council Consultative Forum of failing to table the offer on five consecutive occasions since May last year.

According to Secretary-General Constantine Wasonga, IPUCCF reneged on its promises to table the offer on May 31 and July 1, 2017, and on January 31, February 13 and February 21 this year.

“Uasu deeply empathises with students and parents who have to contend with the devastating effects of a preventable strike,” Wasonga told journalists in Nairobi on Wednesday.
