PCK assures its customers of service delivery

NAIROBI, Kenya 30 Nov- The Postal Corporation of Kenya says it is in talks with the Communication Workers Union to resolve a dispute that has led to a work boycott across the country.

The corporation says the strike was outlawed by the industrial courts yesterday.

“Management wishes toassure the staff that it has already put in place mechanisms to address most of the issues and concerns raised by the Union during the negotiations and has called for patience as the matter progresses,“ a statement from the PCK.

The management has stated that, the decision by Communication Workers Union of Kenya to resort to a strike at a time when negotiations were going on is in bad faith and contrary to the spirit of negotiations.

This comes after the employees had issued a strike notice to the management if their issue of salary increase by 48 percent had not been addressed according to the specified period. The employees had also requested that the increase be halved and spread in a period of two years.

Speaking on behalf of the employees, the General Secretary to the Communication Workers Union of Kenya Benson Okwaro says, they will respect the court order so long as return to work formula had been signed by the parties concerned, where the safety of all employees had been guaranteed.

The PCK has assured its customers that it has put in place contingent measures to ensure that delivery of service will continue uninterrupted in all its outlets country wide.
