Another Lecturer University Strike Could Be Underway

University lecturers have threatened to once again down their tools in a week’s time if the government does not implement the salary increment they had agreed to. This follows a choice made by universities to revert to the salaries and allowances that the dons were earning after implementing Ksh 10 billion arrears up to June 30.

Public universities are set to open next week on Monday the 28th. The government has already delayed paying the lecturers their dues twice so far.

“This is to inform you that universities have computed the additional funds that are required to pay the new salaries as per 2013-2017 CBAs and sent a request for the same to the Ministry of Education,”

read an August 22 memo from Professor Francis Wachira, Deputy Vice-Chancellor-Administration at South Eastern Kenya University to all staff.

The lecturers at the University of Nairobi have said that things will not go on as usual if the government does not do as it had earlier promised.

On August 22nd, Dr. Wasonga asked why the government has not implemented the 2013-2017 collective bargaining agreement and deposited it with the Industrial Court, saying it was a violation of their deal.

Universities said they used the money to pay salary arrears for 27,700 staff following two strikes in March and July. The more than 9,000 lecturers were paid Sh5.5 billion, junior support staff Sh1 billion while non-teaching staff in senior positions got Sh3.5 billion.
