COTU blocks PUSETU out of Labour day fete

29 April 2014, 15:32 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Central Organisation of Trade Unions COTU has been granted sole rights to the Labour day celebrations by the Industrial court.

There has been a battle on the cards between COTU and the Federation of Public Service Union of Kenya PUSETU over who is mandated to run the Labour Day celebrations on Thursday May 1, 2014.

COTU has been the usual host of the event but this time they got opposition from PUSETU who felt that had every right to host the event too.

But in a ruling Tuesday at the court, COTU won the day simply because they produced evidence that they had already started and completed preparations for the event to the tune of KES 15 million.

" I do hereby grant the petitioner the exclusive rights to prepare the event and restrain the respondent from disturbing the peace on the material day, she read in her ruling.

COTU had argued in its suit that it had organised all preceding Labour day celebrations since 1965 and did not see valid reason for PUSETU to want to lead the celebrations.

The celebrations are a forum for workers unions to state their issues over workers' rights to the government and employers.
