Written by Joey Shekwonuzhibo on June 1, 2023
Federal Government and striking Joint Health Sector Union will reconvene today, June 1st, 2023 in a bid to find a resolution to the ongoing indefinite strike.
The National Vice-chairman of JOHESU, Dr Obinna Ogbonna, disclosed this in an interview.
The unions had met with the government last Thursday, however, the meeting ended in a deadlock.
Members of the union embarked on an indefinite strike last Thursday to press home their demands which include the immediate approval and implementation of the Technical Committee report on Consolidated Health Salary Structure Adjustment by the Federal Government.
They are also demanding the immediate payment of the omission and shortfall in the COVID-19 hazard/inducement allowances of affected health workers in federal health institutions among other things.
