Striking university lecturers and Non Teaching Staff have suspended their 9 day industrial action. The move came after talks between the striking lecturers and non teaching staff held a meeting with top government officials at the Ministry of Labour offices. The strike had paralyzed learning forcing some public universities to be shut down indefinitely. The return-to- work formula was agreed upon at a meeting between University Union officials and the Ministry of Labour paving way for lecturers and non-teaching staff to resume work immediately. It was also agreed that the negotiations that broke down in 2009 will resume on or before December the first, this time bringing together the unions and the Ministries of Labour, Higher Education, Finance and Public Service. Sally Mbilu reports on an agreement that also saw University Union officials demand that no lecturer is victimized on account of the industrial action.
