County workers empty honey suckers in Public Service Board offices

Disgruntled casual workers at the Nyandarua county government have emptied honey suckers at the entrance of the County Public Service Board offices, paralyzing operations.

The workers are protesting against alleged violation of tripartite agreement between them, the county management and the public service board on promotions and confirmation.

Earnest Macharia- the chairman Nyandarua county branch of the Kenya County Government Workers Union said that the workers are not going back to work unless they are served appropriately.

Honey sucker.

“We had an agreement with the County Management Board and the Public Service Board that by the 19th of December our promotions and confirmations would have been issued. It has been more than two months now and nothing to show for it,” he said.

The more than one hundred workers camping at the county public offices say that they have been lied to by the county government since its inception and that it has been dodging them.

They complained that colleagues who were seconded to the county government are yet to get confirmation letters.

The workers have been complaining that the secretary at the Nyandarua County Public Service Board Mr Jack Mbugua has been ignoring them.

Efforts to reach Mr Mbugua were futile and he was said to be on leave.

The county workers are currently waiting for an appointee from the governor’s office to resolve the issue.
