No learning at Egerton as lecturers down tools over poor remuneration

Learning has been interrupted at Egerton University after Lecturers on Monday commenced strike over what they term is failure by the Institution to pay salaries and allowances.

The move has left students stranded as the battle between the lecturers and University Council over pay continues.

Lecturers who addressed Journalists on Monday before launching their strike, accused the University Council for failing to implement the 2013-2017 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

Led by University Academic Staff Union Secretary-General Constance Wasonga, they vowed to protest up to the Ministry of Education at Jogoo House Building in Nairobi.

“We are saying enough is enough and there will be no learning in this University until our concerns are addressed.As a matter of fact we shall on Tuesday move to Ministry of Education at Jogoo House to air our disatisfaction” said Wasonga.
