Nairobi - Officials from the Public Servants Trade Union (PUSETU) have threatened to call for a nationwide workers’ strike if the government does not suspend the enactment of the new National Security Social Fund (NSSF) rates.
They vowed to block the implementation of new rates which are set to take effect on June 1, 2014 without their input, The Standard reports.
The officials argue that the tax burden has been put on Kenyan workers without an increase in their salaries and the enactment of the new rates would overburden them more.
They also want to be represented in the scheme saying that NSSF has been charged with many cases of corruption hence it cannot be trusted.
