Govt accused of plotting to sabotage COTU

11 April 2014, 11:29 Wilshere

Nakuru - Leaders of the Central Organization of Trade Union in Nakuru Thursday accused the government of sabotaging the union so as to infringe on the rights of workers.

They called on the affiliates of COTU to remain firm and support the leadership of the Secretary General, Francis Atwoli.

Led by the branch Secretary of the Tailoring and Workers Union, Sarah Owano and the national General Secretary of the Kenya Private School Union, Sakayo Markey, the leaders said it was obvious that there was hidden agenda to frustrate COTU.

"This is clear after three Cabinet Ministers attended the launch of the PUSETU this week in Nairobi," they said.

Owano said some employers are also taking advantage of the plot by the Government to undermine COTU by not releasing the contributions of workers to the giant organization.

The officials said COTU will remain firm in defending workers, rights and called on Atwoli to continue fighting for the workers.

She pointed out that it was wrong for the government to openly take sides when they are supposed to remain non partisan.
Markey observed that workers know the forces behind the rival union and that they should not waver in their support for COTU.

On the forthcoming Labour Day celebrations, they said shop stewards have the responsibility to organize the event.
