Some hours ago, KNH issued a statement to the general public updating them on the current state and efforts in place to resolve.
They confirmed having been handed a seven day strike notice at a time when the nurses and health workers are in the frontline in the fight against coronavirus in the country.
According to the nurses, they are demanding an upward salary review by the Salary and Remuneration Commission after the hospital was re-categorized by the government from category 3C to 7A.
They are in the meantime engaging the unions involved in talks in conjunction with the Ministry of Health and SRC to find an amicable solution and return activities back to normal.
