Joint Health Sector Unions threatens to resume strike on January 31
Joint Health Sector Unions-JOHESU, has threatened to resume the industrial action it suspended on 30th May 2018 if the issues in dispute are not resolved before Thursday, 31st January this year.
Issuing the strike notice in a letter addressed to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Doctor Chris Ngige, JOHESU Chairman, Comrade Biobelemoye Josiah noted that having waited for this long it was surprising that the matters had not been resolved.
Reports say among issues at stake are upward adjustment of the CONHESS Salary structure; unjustified withholding of the salaries of JOHESU members for the months of April and May, 2018 and headship of hospital departments.
Others are non-promotion of members on CONHESS 14 – 15 as Directors in some Federal Health Institutions, and implementation of Consultancy Cadre to JOHESU members.
