According to CEO Joshua Oigara of Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) group, South Sudan’s employees have returned to work after a nationwide sit-down. KCB Staff were demanding 50% salary increment as well as overtime, lunch, and transport allowances.
The demands were made in a petition handed to the bank management in Juba following the strikers’ meeting at Millenium Hotel.
“The staff is working today. They had running issues which we have been discussing but now all our branches are open” Said Mr. Joshua Oigara.
The Kenya’s largest bank also has a presence in Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and Tanzania.
Today morning, KCB management and staff held a preliminary meeting and agreed on terms to resume work and for the negotiation to be completed before Friday this week.
