Uchumi Supermarkets #ticker:UCHM has signed a return-to-work formula with its workers following a strike over non-payment of the May and June salaries, which paralysed the retail chain’s operations.

The deal signed yesterday between the supermarket and the Kenya Union of Commercial, Food and Allied Workers (Kucfaw) requires Uchumi, which has about 1,300 employees, to pay May salaries from today and June wages starting July 14.

The return-to-work formula signed by three Uchumi managers including chief executive Julius Kipng’etich and union officials requires all staff to resume duty with immediate effect.
