Joint Health Sector Unions, JOHESU, the umbrella body of health workers in the country, has commenced a seven-day nationwide warning strike. It has directed all its members in federal health institutions to proceed on a seven-day warning strike from 12.01am of Wednesday, June 22, 2016. According to a communiqué issued by JOHESU after meeting with government on Tuesday, June 21, in Abuja, the seven-day warning strike was given for the lack of seriousness on the part of government on agreements between it and JOHESU. “We hereby appeal to the general public to please bear with us and impress it on the federal government to meet the demands of the unions
to prevent the warning strike from becoming a full blown indefinite strike,” JOHESU said. The health workers union complained that at the rescheduled meeting of Tuesday, June 21, it observed that despite the series of meetings earlier held with committees and sub-committees set up to look unto the various issues presented by JOHESU and agreements reached, “to our utmost surprise the federal government asserted that there was no agreement on the issues upon which erstwhile Secretary to the Federal Government set up a sub-committee, the report of which was accepted by the federal government and another sub-committee set up to work out the financial implication to be submitted to the federal government for approval,” JOHESU said.
