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 strike notice takes effect on Monday, November 19.
