THE Union of Kenya Civil Servants is calling on nurses to ignore the call for a strike and report to work on Monday. Head of medical chapter Evans Nasebe appealed to nurses to report to work and offer normal services and wait for discussions to address their grievances.
He said nurses risk being sacked if they go on strike, as it is illegal and could amount to absconding duties. The Labour ministry said the planned strike is a contravention of the law and amounts to committing an offence.
In a letter sent to nurses' unions, chief industrial relations officer Peter Macharia urged the aggrieved workers to seek redress at the industrial court.
