Nurses vow to oppose termination of employment

24 January 2014, 10:17

Uasin Gishu - The Uasin Gishu Branch of the National Nurses Union has called on the Public Service Commission to stop “frustrating” employees whose ministries were transferred to county governments.

The Union Secretary General, Jonathan Bee, said the union would oppose the move the sack or retirement of employees who would not be employed by county governments.

He further added that their jobs were justified under the national laws and the union would therefore not accept termination of their contracts without valid reasons.

“Until such a time that the national government will hand us officially to the county governments and vice versa. Why we are saying vice versa is that there are those jobs that are within counties and if they are not within counties those officers be  taken back to the national government. We are saying that the chair lady of the public service commission should be the one moderating smooth transition of the workers from national level to county level she should take sides,” said Bee.

Earlier, the chairperson of the Public Service Commission, Margaret Kobia, said that employees who would not be employed by county governments risked losing their jobs.

There has been a tussle over devolution of medical services with medical practitioners preferring to remain under the national government contrary to the provisions of the new Constitution.
