Kenya County Government Workers Union, KCGWU, is set to sign a recognition Memorandum of Understanding, MOU, with the Kilifi County government.

The move was made during a consultative meeting with the members in Kilifi after the officials led by KCGWU General Secretary, Roba Duba Roba, held discussions with Governor Gideon Mung’aro.

Roba said he was optimistic that the employer was willing and had agreed to address key issues affecting workers in the county.

Outstanding allowances for county workers since devolution was also a major issue under discussion from leave allowances and travel allowances totalling Ksh52 million according to the register that the Governor agreed to settle.

Another issue that cuts across all 47 Counties is pending promotions affecting those who transited from the defunct local Authorities without recognized academic papers categorized as common cadres.

The promotion of the affected workers depends on the period served that has been outstanding, already the county executive and the county service board have shown commitment is solving the problem.

Michael Chiunje KCGWU Kilifi county spokesperson says the pact heralded a new dawn for the county workers where the union has moved in to address their plight.

Dickson Thoya branch Chairman noted that addressing the issues will enable workers to be productive in achieving county objectives and enhancing service delivery.
