Activities in the health sector may be disrupted should the Federal Government fail to meet the agreement between it and the unions in the sector.
The Joint Health Sector Unions and Assembly of Healthcare Professional on Wednesday issued the Federal Government 30-day ultimatum to implement agreements entered into last year or face nationwide strike action.
The decision according to a statement issued in Abuja was reached at the last meeting of the unions on 1st and 2nd March, 2018. The statement which was signed by all the presidents of the various unions noted that little or nothing has been done to archived between last year and now.
The union noted that after a critical assessment, it observed that little or nothing has been achieved between then and now. “The house therefore resolved that a 30days ultimatum be given to government with effect from Monday, 5th March 2018. “However, if the government fails to accede to our long term demands, we shall have no other option than to resume our suspended strike action.”
JOHESU has also commenced the mobilization and sensitization of its members ahead of the forthcoming resumption of nationwide strike, following the inability of the federal government to implement the agreement entered with the unions.
