Looming strike by health workers
21 February 2012, 10:28
Nairobi - Health workers vowed to down their tools next month if the government does not pay their allowance as agreed last year, according to reports by Daily Nation.
The Kenya Health Professionals Society (KHPS), that includes Nurses, clinical officers, mortuary attendants and other health workers; said they would boycott work if the first phase of the KES 30,000 risk allowance they negotiated with the government last year was not paid by March 1.
KHPS’s chairman Duncan Mathenge said they would resort to industrial action because they were promised the allowances would be implemented within the 100 day rapid result plan, which expires on February 29th 2012.
