Airport workers join Kenya Airways pilots in ongoing strike

Kenya Aviation Workers Union (Kawu) on Saturday asked their members to down their tools over Kenya Airport Authority’s failure to conclude and implement a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) which was negotiated and agreed upon in 2019.

Kawu members who include airport customer service personnel, ground flight safety staff started the boycott at 2pm.

Kawu secretary-general Moss Ndiema asked members to withdraw labour and remain out of shop floor in all areas, “until KAA management finds the need and the urgency to conclude the CBA.”
