BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,7TH APRIL 2018-Lecturers say they will not resume work until their demands are fully met .This comes just a day after  the Labour court ordered them to resume duty on Monday.

According to the  Universities Academic Staff Union (Uasu), they appealed the decision the court ruling that declared their strike illegal on Friday and therefore, the strike continues pending the decision of the appeals court.

Uasu Secretary-General Constantine Wasonga on Saturday told the lectures to disregard all memos or directives emanating from universities managements.

“During the pendency of the strike, actionable communication only comes from the union,” he said.

While making a ruling  on Friday on the validity of the strike which has been on for over a month now , Judge Onesmus Makau said the strike is unlawful and unprotected and ordered the dons to resume work on Monday.

The judge also ordered the universities to present the 2017-2021 Collective Bargaining Agreements to the Labour Cabinet Secretary within 21 days.

He also gave the lecturers and other university staff liberty to appeal his decision.

Appellate court   is expected to give directions on Monday.
