Clinical Officers Put pen to paper, Suspend Looming strike

The looming strike for Clinical officers that had been announced by the Union is most likely not to happen after the Kenya Union of Clinical Officers (Kuco) engaged talks with the ministry of health.

The ministry of Health signed a recognition agreement with the prospective striking workers who wanted to join their counter parts, the nurse who have since gone on strike since 4th this month and their strike has since paralyzed work in government health facilities across the country to a standstill.

The Recognition Agreement, signed on Monday, now gives the Kenya Union of Clinical Officers (Kuco) legal grounds of engaging with the National Government on matters around their working conditions and remuneration.

The government tried to threaten them to get back to work but instead resorted to peaceful talks which are said to have taken place on Friday last week. Until now majority are still on strike despite the county governments confirming that some are back for work but majority over 3500 nurses are still missing at work.
