Tea company stopped from firing employees

By Nikko Tanui | August 5th 2016

Unilever Tea Company has been stopped from firing employees who participated in the recent strike that rocked the multinational firm.

The Employment and Labour Relations Court yesterday stopped the company from victimising the employees after the Kenya Plantation and Agricultural Workers Union (KPAWU) sought orders.

"Upon perusal of the supporting affidavit of one Thomas Kipkemoi, interim orders are hereby issued restraining the respondents, their agents, assigns and representatives from effecting cause notices, disciplinary action or victimising any employee for participating in the strike between 12 and 23 July," said Justice Marete Njagi.
