“Workers union boss wades into SGR mistreatment claims”
Railway and Allied Workers Union (RAWU) says it has been trying to file a complaint with China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) over alleged mistreatment of local workers. RAWU secretary general John Chumo...says he has been receiving complaints from local staff over various acts of racial discrimination against them…“Yes, I have received many complaints from local staff especially the locomotive drivers who said they have been facing discrimination from the management of SGR. But when I called the human resource manager he dismissed the claims as not true,” says Mr Chumo.
Mr Chumo claims 40 local locomotive drivers hired by the Chinese operator are paid Sh30,000 monthly while their Chinese counterparts take home Sh100,000. “This wage disparity is unacceptable because the local drivers as just as qualified as the Chinese employees,” he says.
