Unions call for di­a­logue to avert loom­ing in­dus­trial ac­tion over SRC job eval­u­a­tion

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Seven unions yes­ter­day called for a gen­uine and all-in­clu­sive so­cial di­a­logue with the SRC to end the stale­mate on job eval­u­a­tion. They said they sup­port calls for a national strike over job eval­u­a­tion by the Salaries and Re­mu­ner­a­tion Com­mis­sion. The unions un­der the um­brella of As­so­ci­a­tion of Pub­lic Sec­tor Union of Kenya spokesman Ernest Nadome said the SRC has wors­ened the wel­fare of civil ser­vants. Nadome, who is also the sec­re­tary gen­eral of the Kenya Elec­tri­cal Trade and Al­lied Work­ers Union, said they sup­port de­mands of work­ers in the health sec­tor at national and county gov­ern­ment level. “We de­mand that both lev­els of gov­ern­ment en­ter into ne­go­ti­a­tions with work­ers unions to re­solve the loom­ing in­dus­trial cri­sis,” he said. Nadome said since 2013, the SRC has con­tin­ued to side­step its man­date of set­ting and re­view­ing re­mu­ner­a­tion for state of­fi­cers.
