Nyamira County Doctors have signed an agreement to end a four months strike that left service
delivery in all the county facilities grounded.
The truce was reached after the County Governor promised to implement all the pending issues
which the medics wanted to be implemented before returning to work.
Among the issues that the medical professionals were disagreeing with the county included
stagnated promotions of staffs, victimization of those who participated in previous industrial
strikes and payment of salaries accrued from promotions that were effected in 2017.

of Nyamira over the strike by the doctors which commenced on September 15, 2020, it has now
been agreed that the union commits to withdraw all cases against the county or any of its officers
from the Employment and Labour Relations Court immediately," read part of the return-to-work
