China Communications Construction Company says they did not sack 1,000 SGR workers

China Communications Construction Company, the contractor of the Nairobi–Naivasha SGR Phase 2A project has refuted claims that it has fired 1,000 staff at the Maai Mahiu sub-section.

Over the past few days, the workers at the sub-section office No. 4 have been engaging in a strike, raising issues on remuneration and an improvement of the working conditions.

The company, however, said since the start of the strike, they have been having discussions with the workers’ representatives on how best to handle these issues.
