Clinical officers suspend call off their 70-day strike after court order

Kenya Union of Clinical officers (KUCO) has suspended its 70-day strike due to a court order that was issued on Tuesday.

The union’s chair Peterson Wachira Wachira said the clinical officers will obey the court order issued by Justice Maureen Onyango even though their demands are yet to be met.

In her ruling Thursday, Justice Onyango ordered that all disciplinary procedures against the clinical officers be stopped and that employers pay salaries for all workers.

“We will comply with the court order…we direct our members to report to their work stations…Employers have not addressed our grievances even as we resume duty,” said the KUCO boss.

“We shall not voluntarily expose ourselves even as we report back to duty…We urge employers to sign and implement the Return To Work Formula (RTWF)…Our members were evicted from their house in Taita Taveta and Kisii.”
