Court’s summons over 50pc pay cut for all AA staff
The Automobile Association of Kenya (AA Kenya) has been summoned to court on May 14 over its decision to implement a 50 percent pay cut for all its employees for the months of March and April.
The Kenya Long Distance Truck Drivers and Allied Workers Union took the matter to court, accusing AA's management of effecting an unjustifiable and unilateral decision with the aim of exploiting more than 500 people.
The union’s General Secretary, Mr. Nicholas Mbugua, said it was unfair for the company to backdate salary deductions in the guise of measures following the Covid-19 pandemic.
In this directive, the Employment and Labour Relations Court said the case will be mentioned at 9 am and directions given.
“Take further notice that if no appearance is made by yourselves, your advocate, or your legal representative, the court shall proceed to mention and determine the same your absence notwithstanding,” said the notice served to AA management on Monday 20.
