Image result for Kenyan doctors end three-month standoff after deal with govtDoctors in Kenya’s public hospitals on Tuesday finally called-off a three-month strike.

This comes after they reached an agreement on pay and working conditions– ending a standoff that threatened to embarrass the government before August’s elections.

The agreement grants doctors increased allowances, outlines a promotion plan and protects doctors who went on strike from retribution.

County governments will recognize the union and conclude local agreements within 60 days.

The doctors went on strike on Dec the 5th, demanding authorities implement a 2013 agreement to give them a 150 to 180 percent pay rise.
