Nairobi County officials to go on Strike from Tuesday


Nairobi county workers  will kick off their strike on Tuesday 12th February. This is after the county government  failed  to effect the  15%  salary increment as agreed between the two parties  in  a collective bargaining agreement signed on May 2017.

In an intervew  with Ghetto Radio News Nairobi City County Workers Union secretary general Benson Oliang’a Oriaro,  the county government has been playing ‘ping pong games’  with them despite  the CBA being  signed adding that they will stay off duty until  their demands are met.

‘‘I want  to ask all Nairobi city county workers  to report tomorrow and sign at their respective duty posts then we shall converge at city hall, where will parade and demand for our pay.’’ Oriaro stated.

He further  asked  governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko to move with speed and promptly effect the CBA before it attracts more arrears.

According to Oriaro  county workers  of Nairobi are living in poverty due to poor pay and work burden that is  far to be realized by the current regime.

Nairobi city county government has about 13,000 workers and should the county government  implement the 15% pay rise , it will cost  an additional figure of  ksh.110 million monthly.
