Kenya Civil Servants who have not joined the Union of Civil Servants have been urged to register immediately to help the union win the war against persistent oppression by the government; these emerged during an education and awareness meeting hosted by union of Kenya Civil Servants Nyando branch at Ahero Multipurpose training and development institute.
Addressing members during the event, union of Kenya Civil Servants secretary general Mr. Tom Odege urged members to stick together and fight with one spirit if they wish to win the war on salaries, allowances and the much rumored retrenchment, Odege however assured the members that the union has in place a plan to challenge and review the allowances in hardship areas.
If the teachers get hardship and commuter allowances, other civil servants should be awarded the same, said Tom Odege
During the unions meeting he also confirmed to the members that retrenchment is no longer a big issue since the union already held talks with the civil service CEO Professor Kobia who assured them of their jobs.
We have talked to Prof. Kobia and what is coming out clear is that all our jobs are secure and there is no course of alarm over this, said Tom Odege.
Among the key issues discussed during the meeting were; leaf allowance, salaries and promotions which the union promised to pursue and harmonize, the proposed salary for the lowest earner is to be ksh 15,000 while the least house allowance is Ksh 7,5000 given the current economic and financial constraints in the country.
What we are now pursuing to be harmonized are by the employer is the leave allowance salary and promotion of our staffs in the civil servant sector, added Odege the Secretary General of the union
Mr. Odege however argued that the current salaries were distorted by Sarah Serem’s salaries and remuneration commission, the issue is pending in court awaiting further direction as the team lobbies for over a million signatures to send the disgraced commission home before mid next year.
The meeting was also attended by county secretaries from Migori, Siaya, Laikipia, Nyeri and Homa Bay counties so that they can help disseminates the outcome of the meeting to all line members.
