Rail workers union wades into SGR mistreatment claims - 7 months ago, 10 July 14:36

By: Charles Wasonga

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, speaking on Monday during an interview with a local television station, says he has been receiving complaints from local staff over various acts of racial discrimination against them.

The Chinese firm was awarded a 10-year contract in 2017 to maintain and operate the Standard Gauge Railway after the project was commissioned.

“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.
