Kenya Airports Authority Workers Set To Join Kenya Airways Pilots In Going On Strike

Kenya Airports Authority : Passport Control

Workers at Kenya Airports Authority who are unionized are preparing to withdraw their services as the Kenya Airways (KQ) pilot strike continues.

The strike will begin at 2pm, according to a statement from the Kenya Aviation Workers Union (KAWUsecretary )'s general dated November 5.

He stated that a court ruling issued on August 15, 2022 had authorized KAA employees to strike in response to a deadlock about the failure to reach a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

"In conformity with the aforementioned court ruling, this is to inform and advise all unionisable employees of KAA to begin the strike at 2pm today, November 5, 2022." Ndiema said that management had made no attempt to reach a CBA agreement.

This comes as Kenya Airways had given pilots till 11.30 am, after which they must go to work or risk losing their jobs.

Speaking to the media on Saturday morning, KQ CEO Allan Kilavuka said that the 400 Kenya Airways pilots' strike, which has shut down the national carrier's operations, has harmed at least 10,000 customers.
