JOHESU To Begin Indefinite Strike At Midnight Today
The Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) has said that it will embark on an indefinite strike starting from Midnight on Thursday, May 25, following the failure of government to meet its demands.
This comes just one day after JOHESU organized a rally to the National Assembly (NASS), to make their case before the legislators.
In a letter dated May 9, 2023, the leadership of JOHESU issued a 15-day ultimatum to the Federal Government over alleged inconsistencies of the government in the ongoing negotiations to adjust the Consolidated Health Salary Structure for health workers on their platforms.
The organization which serves as an umbrella body of health workers’ unions and associations, noted that the government had shown tendencies to shift from their agreed terms and rules of engagement relating to non-discrimination in the determination of the wages and benefit packages of health workers in Nigeria.
