Lecturers prepare to go on strike as dons demand Ksh38 billion

Lecturers are set to hold demonstrations over the failure of the government to table a counter-offer on the 2017—2021 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

The dons were expected to gather at the Nairobi University Graduation Square before marching to Parliament and Jogoo House where they are expected to present their petition.

The academicians on Tuesday sought Parliament’s intervention to help bring the government to the negotiating table.

They want Ksh38 billion factored into the 2018/19 budget to cater for pension, medical insurance, car loans, mortgages and salaries which they said are grossly distorted.
