NAKURU, Kenya, Oct 1 – Egerton University employees have issued a seven-day strike notice over delayed salaries.

 

According to the Kenya Universities Staff Union (KUSU) Secretary General Charles Mukhwaya, the university administration also failed to honor the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

 

“The chilling suffering of or members, the harrowing pain they have to endure to make ends meet, the horrendous conditions they work in is against the International Labour Organisation (ILO) working conditions to which our dear country is a signatory,” he stated.

 

He pointed out that for some time now, “Egerton University has gained the notoriety of being synonymous with mismanagement. it began with the non-payment of full salaries which gained fever pitch with the failure to implement negotiated basic salaries of the 2017- 2021 CBA.”

 

Among their demands, Mukhwaya stated that the Egerton University Council must pay members their 100pc salaries with immediate effect.

 

He pointed out that all accumulated salary arrears should also be paid in addition to the restoration of negotiated terms and conditions of service as pronounced by the internal Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

 

He also indicated that negotiations and conclusion of the 2013-2017 CBA now pending for seven years must be concluded.
