Planned university lecturers' strike gathers momentum

06 March 2014, 22:18 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The proposed university lecturers' strike got a boost with a workers union supporting the planned industrial action.

A civil servants union has thrown its weight behind the proposed strike action which is set to take place next week.

The Federation of Public Servants Unions of Kenya has said that it backs the pleas of the lecturers to have their dues paid by the government and has urged them to take industrial action if their pleas are not heard.

In a press conference Thursday, acting secretary general of the union Mudzo Nzili said that it was important that the government take responsibility for the plight of workers and address issues related to payment of their dues.

" As a union, we fully back the proposed strike action by university lecturers who are in our opinion one of the most important but underpaid individuals in Kenya, he said.

The Universities Academic Staff Union (UASU) and the Kenya University Staff Union (KUSU) have both called for industrial action next week to protest the lack of government action over their pay structure.

Nzili said it was prudent that his union joins the lecturers in harmony as they have been badly treated by the government in the past.

" When UASU and KUSU call for help, we have no option but to join them, he added.

The two unions say they will take Industrial action starting Wednesday unless close to KES 4 billion in salaries and allowances in arrears are paid to them.

Lecturers accuse university chancellors and their deputies of sitting on the money and say that they will not be cowed by government threats to sack them like has been in the past.
