Nyeri health workers call off strike

10 September 2015, 08:10 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Health workers in Nyeri have called off their three-week strike after negotiations and entering a deal with the County Government.

The Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) Nyeri branch chairperson, Ann Nyawira and Secretary Beatrice Nduati announced that the strike which paralyzed health services in the entire county is no more.

Speaking to journalists outside Governor Nderitu Gachagua’s offices Wednesday, Nduati said the workers will resume duties immediately.

The workers downed their tools on August 17 to protest salary delays, lack of promotions and re-designations, house allowances, poor working conditions and lack of annual pay raises.

Nduati said they have struck a deal on the five issues and also on unremitted statutory deductions and shortage of staff.

She said the negotiations were mediated by national labour office, making the County government to pledge to address the issues.

She said the government will not victimize the workers who participated in the strike and that the vacancies advertised in the daily papers will be canceled.

It is reported that the County government used about KES 1 million to advertise the positions.

Nduati added that both parties agreed to uphold spirit of dialogue on industrial relations.
