The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) has assured travelers of normal operations at all its airports after aviation workers issued a strike notice.


KAA said it has moved to court to challenge the industrial action notice issued by its employees under Kenya Aviation Workers Union (KAWU).
The two parties have been embroiled in a push and pull over pay rise.
“The Authority has proceeded to appeal against the said Order. In the meantime, we wish to assure the general public and airport stakeholders that operations at all our airports are normal,” said KAA.
KAWU had issued a notice on August 15, 2022, announcing the intension to withdraw labour by authority’s employees with effect from Tuesday, August 16, 2022.
“We regret to advise you that with effect from Tuesday, 16th August 2022 at 8AM, all unionisable employees of Kenya Airports Authority in all airports, airstrips and other related facilities shall withdraw labour in accordance with the law until further notice,” said Moss Ndiema, KAWU Secretary Genera.
KAWU had warned travelers to plan their air travel accordingly in anticipation for the strike notice taking effect, a move which could paralyze operations in airports across the country.
