According to the International Transport Workers Federation, “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.”
And please spread the word to your friends, family and fellow union members.
Please take a moment to send your message of protest to the company — click here:
