Mombasa - Daily Nation reports striking Mombasa Municipal Council workers have said they will sue their employer over a two-month salary arrears dispute of KES 220 million.
According to the Kenya Local Government Workers Union (KLGWU) Mombasa County Branch Secretary Rashid Muteti, the union had directed its lawyers to sue the council over non-payment of the workers’ salaries.
He said that although the workers began their strike last Thursday to force the Treasury to disburse the Local Authority Transfer Fund (LATF) cash totaling KES 700 million, nothing had materialised.
