Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has warned that the county will sack nurses who will participate in the planned December 10 strike.
The nurses’ union issued a 21-day strike notice Monday citing nonpayment of service and uniform allowances.
Clinical Officers, on the other hand, are protesting against NHIF policies, which they say limit their scope of service provision.
Sonko told journalists on Wednesday the strike call is illegal ‘as the county had complied with the signed CBA’.
The governor said he is in the process of hiring new nurses and whoever participates in the planned boycott will go home.
“We have a good working relationship with them and I’m not intimidating them, but if they strike, I will sack them. I do not want to go through that route,” he said.
