KNH nurses down tools, join nationwide boycott
Nurses at Kenyatta National Hospital have joined the ongoing nationwide nurses’ job boycott.
The strike to push for recognition and implementation of the caregivers’ Collective Bargaining Agreement entered its 58th day on Monday.
While citing heavy workloads, the KNH nurses said they had decided to go on strike in solidarity with their colleagues in the counties.
Although they are not in dispute with their employer (the Ministry of Health), the nurses said the number of patients seeking treatment at KNH had surpassed the available human resource.
