Nairobi County Government, NMS employees call off strike

0 366

Nairobi City County Government and Nairobi Metropolitan Services Workers have now called of their strike after the two parties reached an agreement.

Acting County Secretary Jairus Musumba together with Nairobi County Public Service Board chairman Thomas Kasoa led the negotiations that saw county government and Kenya County Government Workers Union sign a return to work formula.

“From the 12 demands that were brought to us by your union officials we have been able to tackle them one by one… the main issue here was medical insurance and that concerns everyone.. We have engaged NHIF and paid the Ksh. 392 Million. You can now visit any NHIF accredited facility and get treated. We have also agreed with the union that by 28th October we will clear the remaining balance,” Musumba said.

On promotions the county government said the board will look into the grievance of the affected workers and that they will be promoted.

“We have directed the County Public Service Board to immediately look into promotion and designation issue and we have given them seven days to have that done,” Musumba told the workers.

The county government has however, absolved itself from salary delay accusations pointing an accusing finger at Nairobi Metropolitan Services.

“The salary delay is not on our side …the NMS workers are the ones affected but we have agreed to write to them and have a roundtable meeting together with the union so that it can be addressed,” he added.

In an interview with Ghetto Radio News Kenya County Government Workers Union Secretary Nairobi Branch Festus Ngari has asked the county government to follow the work plan as agreed failure to which they shall go back to the streets.

‘‘It is true that we signed a return to work formula with the county and that our members can resume their duties with immediate effect. The gains that we have is that the medical cover is partially paid and we can now access the services. The employer has also agreed to re-look into our human resource issues including placement, promotions and designations,’’ Ngari told Ghetto Radio on phone.
