Nairobi – The Ministry of Labour has declared the recent retrenchment at Kenya Airways (KQ) as illegal and termed the exercise as “cruel and barbaric.”
Speaking before the Parliamentary Committee on Labour and Social Welfare, Labour Permanent Secretary Beatrice Kituyi said from her Ministry’s investigation there was no dialogue or pre-retrenchment counseling for staff, which went against the normal retrenchment process under the law.
“The consultation between the workers and employees was hampered. Dialogue between the management and the union is critical in ensuring that this is done in accordance in the law, the Collective Bargaining Agreement and in a humane way,” she said.
