Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital Nurses call off strike, set to sign CBA

Health & Science - By Michael Ollinga | January 29th 2015 at 12:00:00 GMT +0300

ELDORET: The Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) has temporarily called off a three-day strike at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) after negotiating a return-to-work formula with the hospital's administration.

KNUN National Secretary General Seth Panyako officially called off the strike on the basis of a return-to-work formula, pending the signing of a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) on February 3.

Over 800 nurses at MTRH on Monday morning downed their tools over what they termed as unwillingness by the hospital's management to sign a CBA they had negotiated for the past two years.

JOINT COMMITTEE

"Key issues in the return-to-work formula are that the employer (MTRH) and KNUN officials will have three members each to form a joint committee that will on February 2 verify the genuineness of the CBA document before we append signatures for approval," said Mr Panyako.

Overseeing the implementation of all issues highlighted in and concerning the CBA by the joint committee is another key component in the return-to-work formula in relation to a court ruling issued by the Industrial Court in Nakuru last year.

However, KNUN officials did not say what would happen next if the CBA is not signed next Tuesday.
