Nairobi - National carrier Kenya Airways has retrenched more than 100 workers barely days after the industrial court lifted a court injunction to allow for negotiations on the way forward over the deadlock.
According to The Standard, letters signed by Tom Shivo, the airline’s head of human resources relationships and rewards, indicated that the workers were to cease being employees of the airline by Tuesday at four o’clock.
The retrenchment decision comes despite a directive from the office of the Prime Minister that the process be halted to allow for more time for negotiations, saying that all options should be exhausted first before sending workers home.
