The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

In Au­gust last year, Nairobi health work­ers threat­ened to down their tools, if the county failed to ad­dress their de­mands. They cited the col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing agree­ment and the “mis­han­dling” of Pumwani Ma­ter­nity Hos­pi­tal nurses as some of the key is­sues they wanted ad­dressed. They said the Nairobi gov­ern­ment had not guar­an­teed them timely pay­ment of salaries as pro­vided for in the Em­ploy­ment Act 2007. They said the county had failed to har­monise salaries and al­lowances for those who moved from the cen­tral and the now-de­funct lo­cal gov­ern­ments. They also de­manded pro­mo­tions.
