The seemingly endless industrial actions called by KNUN have resulted in needless deaths as county governments remain unmoved by the nurses’ plight. The most recent strike is informed by the 2017 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) entered between the county governments and KNUN but has since never been implemented.

“It is disheartening to see nurses engage in unlawful withdrawal of labour against the order of the Employment court”.
