Dons end strike as ministry agrees to fully enforce deal

Public university lecturers resume work today after the government committed to releasing the outstanding Sh5.2 billion, which is part of their collective bargaining agreement, by month-end.
University Academic Staff Union secretary general Constatine Wesonga said they agreed that the government will implement the 2013-2017 CBA within this month in full.
Uasu and the Inter-Public Universities Councils Consultative Forum also signed a return-to-work formula that protects academic staff and union officials from victimisation for having participated in the strike.
Early this month, Education CS Fred Matiang’i urged the dons to call off the strike on grounds that Sh4.775 billion had been wired to their bank accounts.
But the lecturers claimed the action was a violation of their rights as the state unilaterally made the decision without consultations.
