Egerton University paralyzed

19 September 2012, 11:07 Steve Wambugu

Striking University workers at Njoro’s Egerton University have vowed to continue with the strike despite a notice issued by the vice chancellor’s council requiring them to return to work immediately.

All staff affiliated to the Universities Non Teaching Staff Union (UNTESU), Universities Academic Staff Union (UASU) and Kenya Domestic Hotel Educational Institutions and Allied Workers Union (KUDHEIHA) ssembled at the university’s graduation square as early as 8 am chanting anti government slogans saying that they shall not be intimidated.

UNTESU national organizing secretary Earnest Wayaya said that normal operations in all public universities would only resume once the government implements  two collective bargaining  agreements for the period 2010-2012 and 2012-2014.

He said that it was shameful to see that permanent secretaries were given allowances increment at a time when teachers, doctors and university staff were pushing for the implementation of  collective bargaining agreements which the government signed but is now reluctant to obey.

His UNTESU counterpart Kiogora Mureithi said that poor pay among university staff had reduced them to mere servants as if the government does not care for its people.

Before addressing the media , the striking workers went round all the departments to ensure no workers stayed out of their work places.
