Former CG chairman Peter Munya has asked nurses to take patients' suffering into consideration and return to work. Nurses are now on the fifth day of their strike over the implementation of a CBA for better pay that they signed with the government.
Munya, who is Meru Governor, said the health workers should be content for now as their allowances and salaries were increased. He said on Thursday that they should also exercise patience in the process of implementing the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Munya noted effecting the deal requires several steps and that the Salaries and Remuneration Commission should be given more time to look into strategies for fulfilling it, considering employment ranks. "Counties have done their bit. We have already increased their allowances and salaries. It is only the signing of the CBA they are after. Please, nurses, return to work and give SRC more time for implementation," he said.
