According to Zakaria Mohammed,  the decision to strike follows the government’s failure to address the concerns of its members despite calls on government since February 2021.

He reiterated that members of the association will lay down their tools today and ensure, no skeletal staff are brought in to work while they strike.

Zakaria Mohammed says the association will continue to strike until government is ready to renegotiate with the association.

“The strike started yesterday 18th of May 2021. The government has not yielded to the directives of the Labour Commission. This one is going to be an aggravated strike because the last time we went on strike, retired staff were put in the principal offices. This time around, we are going to make sure that no skeletal staff is going to be put in principal offices. We are in trying times and the cost of living has gone up and since government is not listening to us, wee need to strike, ” he added.
