Lecturers: Strike is on until CBA is resolved

Lecturers: Strike is on until CBA is resolved

- in Education, News

At least 1,200 Moi University staff have declared they will intensify their strike until the government implements the delayed 2017-21 CBA.

Top officials of the Kenya Universities Staff Union (Kusu) met workers at the university on Tuesday, following the industrial action that began on March 1.

Kusu Secretary General Charles Mukwaya asked more than 27,000 members of the union to remain on strike until the CBA is effected.

He said they will do whatever it takes to enjoy their rights as they are frustrated.

“The strike is going to be escalated, up-scaled and intensified until the government provides counter proposals on the CBA.”

But Mukwaya noted that frequent strikes are ruining university education in the country.

“We have not heard from the national government and the university council on progress regarding the collective bargaining agreement. This is not good for our institutions,” he said.

He asked Education Minister Amina Mohamed to initiate fresh dialogue with the union so the strike ends.
