BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,5TH JAN,2020-Cinical officers have threatened to resume their strike should their return to work formula remain unsigned in full in the next 48 hours.
The union SG George Gibore has accused the council of governors of being insincere and unrealistic by saying that the return to work formula be signed at individual counties yet acknowledge the ongoing conciliation at the Ministry of Labour.
The clinicians had called off their strike on Friday last week but the agreement remains unsigned by the CoG, with the union now saying the grievances they were fighting for remain unresolved despite calling off the strike.
“The letter by the CoG is an admission that health services are not properly coordinated in our country since devolution and needs an emergency surgery to cure the unending health sector problems,” KUCO SG George Gibore said on Tuesday.”
“The CoG is living in denial that individual counties have failed in management of the HRH since devolution leading to more than 103 strikes since 2013 to date.”
The CoG on Monday bolted out of the return to work formula signed by the doctors union claiming the counties have no money to implement the agreement.
