The nurses through their union have given both the county governments and the central government 21 days to implement their return-to-work formula, or they strike.
Issuing the strike notice, union secretary general Seth Panyako said the return to work formula was part of a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) entered between them and the government on November 2, 2017.
The return-to-work formula was supposed to take effect as from July 1, 2018, but the government has failed to honour its part.
The union is seeking an annual increment of Ksh5,000 on uniform allowance and Ksh3,000 on nursing allowance in the first year and Ksh3,500 in the two subsequent years.
The strike notice takes effect on Monday, November 19.
