Nairobi - The strike by public universities staff was yesterday called off following an agreement between the staff and the management of the institutions.
Learning had been paralysed because of the strike by both teaching and non-teaching staff since last week Wednesday, Daily Nation reports.
Lecturers were demanding sums of up to KES 3.7 billion in terms of salaries and bonuses from the government as agreed in a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) last year.
According to Labour, Social Security and Services Cabinet Secretary Kazungu Kambi, the parties in the dispute resolved to end the strike after they addressed key issues.
