The Star (Kenya) - - Politics | Ministries -

The Geother­mal Devel­op­ment Com­pany has started ne­go­ti­at­ing a col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing agree­ment with its work­ers with a view of re­view­ing their salaries.

The Kenya Elec­tri­cal Trade and Al­lied Work­ers’ Union and the GDC man­age­ment met in a Naivasha ho­tel ahead of the for­mal ne­go­ti­a­tions on Satur­day. Geother­mal union branch sec­re­tary Michael Opiyo said they look for­ward to a pro­gres­sive CBA.

In a press state­ment re­leased af­ter the talks, Opiyo said this is the first CBA the work­ers would be en­ter­ing into with the com­pany.

Union sec­re­tary gen­eral Earnest Nadome praised the GDC man­age­ment for demon­strat­ing lead­er­ship in the mat­ter. He said once signed, the CBA would boost the morale of the staff.

The GDC man­age­ment promised to sup­port the ne­go­ti­a­tions, say­ing no ef­fort would be spared in en­sur­ing the CBA is com­pleted and im­ple­mented.
