Atwoli blasts KQ for firing engineers who went on strike


Francis Atwoli has castigated Kenya Airways for firing 131 maintenance engineers who were on strike.

Atwoli on Thursday said the action by CEO Sebastian Mikosz was unconstitutional as workers have a right to participate in a strike.

On Wednesday, the Employment and Labour Relations Court ordered the airline to refrain from replacing the engineers it sacked last week.

This came after the workers filed a case through their lawyers Anne Babu & Co and Ongoya & Wambola Advocates, challenging their dismissal.
