Court order stops Kenya Airways pilots strike

27 April 2016, 21:05

Nairobi - The Employment and Labour Relations Court has stopped Kenya Airways pilots from going on strike from Thursday.

The Daily Nation reported that Justice Nduma Nderi issued the orders on Wednesday barring the Kenya Airline Pilots Association from engaging in any industrial action on the grounds of mismanagement on the part of Kenya Airways.

The pilots wanted to use the strike to force out KQ chief executive Mbuvi Ngunze.

They also wanted to compel the airline to review its 20-year-old deal with KLM in which the latter has a bigger say on the national carrier.

“An interim order be and is hereby granted restraining the Respondents, its members, agents, servants and or sympathisers from calling, participating or engaging in any form of industrial action including strikes,” said Justice Nderi.

The Standard added that Wednesday, Central Organisation of Trade Unions COTU backed the move by the pilots, calling for the resignation of the management to pave way for a complete overhaul of the airline.

COTU Chairman Francis Atwoli faulted the sacking of 600 staff, saying that the pilots had become easy targets in the airline’s cost cutting measures.
