Kenya's Aviation and Allied Workers Union chairman Moses Ndiema dismissed claims it reached an agreement with Kenya Airways on contentious wage review talks and warned that they will call a strike should the negotiations break down (businessdailyafrica, 29-Dec-2010). Mr Ndiema stated the parties had only selected a team to lead the talks. The union is demanding an approximate USD4 million (KES325 million) in allowances arising from an agreement signed in Apr-2010 and was to be back-dated 15 months while the management wants it to be backdated to Oct-2010, a deal that could save the carrier approximately USD2.5 million (KES200 million).
