Health Workers Fix Date To Begin Nationwide Strike

Published

Health Workers on Monday announced that they will commence a nationwide strike on September 13, 2020 if their demands are not addressed.

Naija News reports the Health Workers are under the aegis of Joint Health Sector Unions and Assembly of Health Care Professionals, JOHESU,

National Chairman of JOHESU, Comrade Bio Joy Josiah, in a press conference in Abuja, warned that if their ultimatum was not met they will proceed on strike.

He accused the Minister for Labour and Employment Senator Chris Ngige who incidentally is a medical doctor of compromise.

He urged the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN) to take over the negotiations between them and government.

According to Josiah, the commitment of the union to resolve issues through dialogue has been taken for granted.

He said the government looks at the health workers as people who cannot bear hunger, adding that the union from September 13 would test its ability whether hunger would kill its members or not.
