Municipal Council workers sacked for striking

13 May 2013, 20:39 Wangui Joseph

Nyeri County Government Finance officer Richard Kimani has recruited new staff to replace former Nyeri Municipal council workers who went on strike last week.

Kimani said the move is comes after fruitless negotiations with County Government workers union leaders whom he termed as incredulous during a media interview in his office on Monday.

He said the strike has affected the council’s service delivery for they have been loosing more than KES 200 000 daily expected from revenue collection.

Kimani said the KES 90 Million demanded by the workers is unrealistic since the county government currently has no money.

“Their money can only be factored in during the supplementary budget that will be tabled in the county assembly next month,” said the officer.

He however added that the other alternative to settle the bill down is by factoring the arrears in the 2013/14 budget which will be prepared in June.

The officer disclosed that the HR office has received hundreds of application letters from locals who are willing to work with the institution adding that the applicants will be deployed casually as they resume trials over the matter again with the union leaders.  

Kimani said the union leaders are not adjusting their demands that the arrears must be promptly settled not understanding the fact that the County has insufficient funds to pay them.

The workers downed their tools last week on Monday claiming that the office of the governor had neglected them, ignored their grievances and there were forces in the office who wanted them sacked.
