LECTURERS STRIKE 2018 KENYA UPDATES

Lecturers on Friday 3rd April 2017 lost their bid to forge ahead with their job boycott after the Employment and Labour Relations court declined to set aside orders declaring the strike illegal.

Even though this is the second time Justice Onesmus Makau has declared the strike as unprotected, he said they are at liberty to move to a higher court for a different opinion.

While making the declaration, Justice Makau said it is contrary to the Labour Relations Act and thus ordered the lecturers to resume duty on Monday.

The judge ordered the universities to present the 2017-2021 Collective Bargaining Agreements to the Labour Cabinet Secretary within 21 day

CS AMINA ABOUT LECTURERS STRIKE 2018

Despite an increasing outcry from students, the Ministry of Education has remained adamant that it will not table any counter offer on the proposed Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) by the lecturers until it concludes its audit on all public universities staff, a move set to prolong the strike.

The ministry has insisted that while it sympathizes with the students’ situation, it cannot do anything until the exercise is completed.

CS Mohammed has reiterated that there will be no talks until the exercise is concluded a move she says will inform any proposal that the ministry will put on the table.

The CS further stated that the Government had not yet evaluated the cost of implementing the new 2017-2021 collective bargaining agreement and if at all it is viable.lecturers strike 2018
