Sonko in trouble? City Hall staff to strike on Tuesday over salary increment

Share

Nairobi County Staff have issued a one day strike notice to protest the failure by Governor Mike Sonko and his administration to implement the 2012 Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The county government workers union (KCGWU) secretary general Roba Duba on Monday asked workers to assemble outside City Hall at 9am Tuesday.


Duba said the CBA had already been registered at the Industrial Court and only the implementation bit remains.

The CBA is divided into two, monetary and non-monetary terms which will see workers also benefit from other perks like leave allowances, medical cover and other related perks.

The Nairobi branch secretary Benson Oriaro, in a letter dated February 4, 2019, issued the strike notice to the county government.

“Due to non-compliance and by disowning your own promise vide letter ref: 12/2018 dates December 13, 2018, to implement in January we, hereby, invoke Section 18 of the Employment Act 20007, to parade the entire Nairobi county government workforce at City Hall beginning February 12, 2019, to demand full implementation as registered,” read the letter addressed to the County Government.

If fully implemented, workers would get a 15 to 28 per cent salary increment.
