THE Malaba Town Council workers has lost millions of shillings through a strike by its workers who have downed their tools since Thursday.
The strike reached a critical stage on Saturday when the 100 unionisable workers closed all revenue collection points including markets, bus park and customs.
KLGWU Malaba branch regional chairman, Joseph Okole, blamed the Local government minister, Paul Otuoma for the striker due to his failure to sign the collective bargaining agreement to effect a salary raise for the workers.
Flanked by women representative Grace Apadet and branch assistant Pius Imo, Okole said they will only resume duties on orders from national union officials.
Otuoma termed the strike called by national union officials as unfair and unreasonable, adding that they were enemies of themselves in reducing revenue collections.
"By reducing revenue collections, the employees may go without salaries. Instead of resorting to such actions union officials should tell their members how far the CBA has gone," he said.
