No strike for lecturers, court sends out tough warning against it.

Employment and Labour relations Judge Helen Wasilwa temporarily stopped the University’s Academic Staff Union -UASU strike set for Thursday next week.

This is after Inter-Public Universities Councils Consultative Forum moved to court under a certificate of urgency to challenge its legality.

The University’s Academic Staff Union and Salary Remuneration Commission are respondents in the case.

Judge Wasilwa directed that the petition be served to the respondents who should appear in court for further directions next week Wednesday.

‘’Any disobedience or non –observance of the order of the court given today will result in penal consequences to the said officials or any other persons,” reads part of the order.

The union representatives have vowed to boycott work beginning next Thursdays after the Inter-Public Universities Councils Consultative Forum (IPUCCF) failed to offer a counter-proposal for their 2013-2017 collective bargaining agreement (CBA).
