Uasin Gishu CDE and Langas Teachers Were Wrong: Atwoli Defends Magoha

Cotu Faults SRC For Over The Civil Servants’ Salary Increment Proposal

Central Organisation of Trade Unions – Kenya (COTU-K) said yesterday it would seek legal interpretation of the mandate of the Salaries and Remuneration Commission. Secretary General Francis Atwoli said Kenya has a progressive Constitution which gives workers the right to collective bargaining. “COTU-K is taken aback by the move by SRC to proceed with the much-opposed Remuneration and Benefits of State and Other Public Officers Regulations 2022,” Atwoli said in a statement.

He accused SRC of collecting views from the public only for it to disregard their concerns and comments. “That is in character with many government institutions, whereby public participation is done as a constitutional formality rather than for purposes of collecting the views of the public and other contributors,” he added.

He said SRC wanted to interfere with freely negotiated Collective Bargaining Agreements in contravention of Article 41 of the Constitution and Labour Relations Act Section V and ILO Conventions 87 on the right to organise and to collective bargaining. “If the Commission does not revert to its advisory role, as stipulated in the constitution, COTU-K, will be forced to move to court to seek a Constitutional interpretation of the mandate of the SRC,” Atwoli said.
