The Council of Governors has directed striking nurses to resume work immediately as agreed upon on the return to work formulae.
In a statement, the governors said those who will fail to report to work will bear personal consequences.
The agreement between the Kenya National Union of Nurses signed on Sunday will see nurses receive allowances of between 15,000 shillings to 20,000 shillings, depending on their job group.
The parties agreed that the remaining part of the talks will be done as the nurses resume work so as to avert any more suffering to Kenyans.
Health Cabinet Secretary, Cleopa Mailu, in the meantime has called on the striking doctors to follow suit and end their strike and give dialogue a chance.
The doctors are still adamant that they won’t resume work until the 2013 CBA is honored by the government and have stopped citing arrest warrants issued against their officials.
