Nairobi Water Employers Threaten To Down Tools


Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company workers have threatened to go on strike over the company’s management failure to implement their Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The workers led by their union leader Matilda Chebet held demonstrations at the company’s headquarters to make clear their demands on the implementation of the CBA.

“The CBA was negotiated by the leader, signed by the employer, approved by the board and taken to industrial court. Unfortunately it is a trade union that stood in court and said no to the CBA,” cried Chebet.

The workers also accused the company of failing to remit their pension money for more than 17 years.

According to Chebet, the money has accrued to Kesh. 6 Billion since 2005.

“The same same employer is playing around with unions and is not paying our pension, we have pension arrears of up to 2.6 billion, our workers are going on retirement without their pension money, “said.
