THE Naivasha-based Karuturi Flower Farm, which is under receivership has sacked seven union officials. The farm, which is the world leading producer of roses at 1 million stems a day, has changed its name to Twiga Roses.
Employees have started a go-slow to protest the sacking. An employee, who declined to be named, said the seven were accused of inciting their colleagues.
Ferdinand Juma of the Kenya Plantation and Agricultural Workers Union accused the management of being insensitive to employees' rights.
Speaking on the phone, he said the stalemate stemmed from a meeting in which the union officers wanted the new management to increase salaries.
