Kenya: Truckers held at gunpoint for protesting over 24 hour shifts
UPDATE: Thank you for your support! The eighty Kenyan truckers forced to work shifts of up to 24 hours, who paralysed Kenya’s northern corridor and were subjected to policy brutality have gone back to work following a settlement. But they still need union recognition, so they can bargain their conditions. All they want is for Agility logistics to recognise their union and treat them with respect. The online campaign continues for union recognition – join the campaign and tell Agility to start talking now!
Over the weekend truck drivers in Kenya working for Agility global integrated logistics were beaten, abducted at gunpoint and forced to drive their trucks to a company workshop. One driver stated “I knew they wanted us dead”. This police brutality follows protests by some 80 Kenyan truckers forced to work shifts of up to 24 hours in Maungu, near Voi and Mai Mahiu. The truckers' strike action has paralysed Kenya’s northern corridor. All they want is for AGILITY to recognise their union and treat them with respect.
