No work, no pay, University of Nairobi to striking lecturers

Workers are set to even have a tougher time as most students are yet to pay their fees which contribute significantly to internally generated revenues.

 

Over 1300 lecturers who are participating in the strike which started January 18 will not receive any oenny for they have not been working, Deputy Vice Chancellor in charge of Administration and Finance Prof Isaac Mbeche has said in a memo to all staff.

“Members of staff who carried out their duties fully in the month of February 2017,” Mbeche said in a memo, adding that recipients of salaries for February shall be paid "subject to government capitation and internally generated funds."

This is set to bruise the lecturers, as the talks to end the two months running impasse seem not to get a solution. On the other hand, workers are set to even have a tougher time as most students are yet to pay their fees which contribute significantly to internally generated revenues.

In mid-January, Lecturers downed their tools countrywide demanding for the negotiation and subsequent implementation of a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) for the 2013-2017 signed between them and the government.

Recent talks mediated by the Universities Academic Staff Union (UASU) and the Inter Public Universities Consultative Council Forum (IPUCCF), had had no impact on the strike as lecturers vowed to have their strike on until their demands are met.

In their arguments, UASU demanded for a 20 and 30 percent increment on basic salaries and house allowance respectively, terming the government offer of Sh10 billion meager as inadequate as it mean only a 3.2 and 1.6 percent increment on the two.
