University staff issue a strike notice to the government
Learning in public universities could be paralysed from next week after the government failed to seal the long awaited pay deal with lecturers. The educators Wednesday issued a seven-day strike notice citing failure to table a counter proposal on the 2017-2021 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). The Universities academic staff union (Uasu) presented its proposal in March last year and has been waiting for the government to table its counter offer. On Wednesday, Uasu met the Inter-Public Universities Councils’ Consultative Forum (IPUCCF) and after hours of closed door discussions, Uasu secretary-general Constantine Wasonga announced that they had no other option than to call for an industrial action until the governments meets their demands.
