NaBCo trainees threaten demo, coordinators threaten strike

The Coalition of Nation Builders Corps (NaBCo) trainees has called for support from all trainees and sympathisers over their collective effort to seek parity, probity and betterment of their welfare.

This was contained in a communiqué issued by the coalition on Tuesday, 23 April 2019.

According to the group, a one-week monitoring period elapsed last week Thursday without a resolution of their grievances which led to a demonstration on April 12.

It pointed out that it is “very disgruntled” by “the prolonged period” taken to pay their five-month arrears to “put them at par with the rest of their colleagues.”

The coalition is demanding full payment of their arrears which date as far back as November.

It also said there are still some trainees “who haven't been paid from November up to date. KMA alone represents over 25 of trainees under the wrong USN category.”

Also, coordinators of the programme in 28 districts in the Northern, Savanna and North East regions have threatened to down their tools if their five-month salary arrears are not paid.
