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.

About 26,000 nurses in public health facilities across the country went on strike in June to protest what they believe is a breach of the CBA they signed with the government.
