The lecturers have been advocating for salary adjustments from the Sh10 billion deal negotiated under the 2013-2017 collective bargaining agreement.
UASU Secretary General Constantine Wasonga said that all universities have agreed to fully implement the agreement unlike before when only five obliged.
Vice chancellors of public universities had earlier maintained they are facing financial gaps that could not allow them to effect the new salary brackets.
Although a comprehensive report on the new CBA has not been issued, it is speculated that In the return to work agreement, the government will also factor accruing pension contributions in the 2021 - 2022 budget and paid to the Retirement benefit schemes.
The strike was anticipated to affect students drastically especially the fourth years who have been left with few days to finalize their exams.
We hope the government will consider both stakeholders to easy smooth learning in varsities.
