Employers unite against reinstatement of KQ staff

Nairobi – The recent Industrial Court ruling that ordered Kenya Airways (KQ) to reinstate 447 unionisable employees has attracted spirited reaction, this time from the fraternity of employers.
Capital News report that the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) and the Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE) say the airline had a valid reason to declare the redundancies, arguing that the Industrial Court should have instead awarded damages to the affected employees instead of reinstatement.
KEPSA and FKE raised concern over what they deemed a growing trend of such decisions by the Industrial Court which gives the impression that investors cannot freely engage and disengage labour and manage their affairs.
