Health workers begin indefinite strike
The Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) have directed its members to embark on an indefinite strike, beginning from Thursday, 25 May.
The national vice president of JOHESU, Obinna Ogbonna, made this known at a media briefing in Abuja on Thursday.
He said the union had, in a letter dated 9 May, issued a 15-day ultimatum to the Federal Government over the government inconsistencies in the ongoing negotiations to adjust the Consolidated Health Salary Structure (CONHESS) for health workers.
He said the ultimatum commenced on May 10 and would expire at midnight on Thursday, 25 May.
“The strike is consequent upon the nonchalant, biassed, and lackadaisical attitude of the Ministry of Health against JOHESU members and the resolution of the expanded National Executive Council meeting of the JOHESU held on May 8,” he said.
“Our members in federal health institutions nationwide are hereby directed to withdraw their services indefinitely commencing from 00:00 hour on Thursday, May 25, 2023,” he said.
