Monday D-day as health workers threaten strike

09 December 2013, 13:20

Nairobi - Health workers around the country have threatened to go slow on their duties if their demands are not met.

The workers were scheduled to meet on Monday with their respective county governors to map a way forward regarding remuneration and what they termed as “central point of operation.”

In addition, through their Kenya Health Workers Association (KHWA), the medic’s assistants are opposed to the move by the government to have their welfare run and managed at county government level. The health workers want to be paid for their services by the central government.

“We are fully opposed to being paid by the county government and if the government cannot retain our functionality at the central government then health workers countrywide will not report for duty starting from Wednesday next week” stated the association.

However, various county government officials have assured the workers and the public that a solution would be arrived during the meeting to be held on Monday.

The Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU), Francis Atwoli, defended the interests of workers by stating the inefficiencies of the County Governments.

He stated that the county government system was “too young and not ready” to handle such tasks.
