The Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) on Thursday, March 26, issued a seven-day strike notice to the County Government of Meru.
KNUN accused the Meru government of failing to pay nurses their February salaries over three weeks since the payments were due.
“The union has learnt with disappointment that the County Government has not paid nurses their salary for the month of February 2020.
“Employment Act section 18.2(c) provides for when the salary is deemed to be due- a provision your office has grossly violated and which is unacceptable,” read part of the statement.
The union now wants members to be paid both the February and March salaries by April 3, 2020.
