Bonface Ngungu Ndwota has been appointed as the new Senior Industrial Relations and Dispute Officer of Kenya National Private Security Workers Union (KNPSU).
KNPSU General Secretary Isaac Andabwa has said that Ngungu will start performing his duties with immediate effect.
“It is always my desire to have a vibrant, effective and service delivery oriented Union, the Union has gone forth and scouted for a professional outside the trade Unionism movement to join it’s National secretariat and help in spear heading my dream, vision and mission anchored in our strategic plan for 2021- 2026, “noted Andabwa.
The union intends to create an environment where guards appreciate their work and value in a bottom up approach without commercialization of Union matters.
Ngungu resigned from G4S and has an experience of more than 24yrs in private security sector with a vast wealth of knowledge and skills on human resource and industrial relations.
He is passionate and a great promoter of social justice on welfare and Industrial matters.
With PSRA setting off the pace by advertising major job vacancies, it clearly indicates the ope-rationalization of the regulator has kicked off.
“This is a heavy task and as private security officers complementing to the state security agencies; we must align ourselves to the task by incorporating professionals that will bring forth strategic ideas and to fairly adjust and compete with emerging sect-oral challenges,”said Andabwa.
Mr Andabwa also recognized the role played by the shop stewards in proper representation, solidarity and disputes resolutions.
” We will only have time to celebrate once we reduce disputes in courts by having many of the cases being cleared by shop-stewards at the shop level and filing none at the courts,”added Andabwa
