According to report, the Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) has threaten to go on nationwide industrial action on September 13 if Federal Government fails to meet up with its demands.
It said that it was demanding for the replacement of Senator Chris Ngige on the negotiating team, saying that it has noticed an element of bias in the handling of negotiations.
While the federal government had solved the case involving the medical doctors, but still can’t find solutions for the demands of the other health workers.
The National Chairman, Comrade Bio Joy Josiah, said that the workers had endured alot and will no longer sit back and allow the continued neglect.
Non payment of outstanding welfare packages, and review of implementation of covid-19 special inducement and hazard allowance, this are some of the greviances to include.
“While it becomes imperative to inform you that if the federal government does not meet these demands by midnight of September 13, 2020, JOHESU will have no choice than to commence a nationwide 7-day warning strike of health workers in federal institutions.
We are doing all of these because of consideration of the interest and wellbeing of citizens of the country.
