Court stops planned lecturers strike

11 March 2014, 20:11 William Korir

Nairobi - The Federation of Kenya Employers FKE has obtained a court injunction stopping the strike by the University Academic Staff Union and Kenya Universities Staff Union which was due to start Wednesday March 12, 2014.


Thus, the two parties have been ordered to appear before Lady Justice Monica Mbaru at the Industrial Court, Wednesday 10 A.


FKE representing the Inter-Public Universities Councils Consultative Forum (IPUCCF) is seeking orders to compel parties to agree to have discussions and arrive at a negotiated agreement.

Earlier, varsity lecturers and non-teaching staff had announced that they will go on strike if the government failed to release the KES 7.8 billion pay rise and other allowances owed to them. 

Both the Kenya University Staff Union (KUSU) and University Academic Staff Union (UASU) had vowed to down their tools alleging that vice chancellors have misappropriated the Unions’ funds.

KUSU Secretary General, Charles Mukhwaya had said that Union members have no other option but down their tools until their grievances are addressed. 

“We have consistently said that the money was misappropriated by the university chiefs. We have presented documents and their admission that they are returning the money to Treasury confirms our fears,” he said.
