JOHESU Suspends Seven Days Warning Strike

The Joint Health Sector Unions JOHESU has suspended its seven days warning strike.

This was contained in a statement signed by its National Chairman Comrade Josiah Biobelemoye and made available to journalists in Abuja.

The statement reads that the nation wide strike embarked upon by the health workers will be suspended by midnight of 20th September, 2020.

According to the statement , all health workers under the five Unions that make up Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) and Assembly of Healthcare Professional Associations (AHPA) shall return to work on Monday, 21st September, 2020 across all Federal Health Institutions in the country.

The statement reads in bits; “The Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Health has continued to exhibit high level of bias/discrimination by refusing to address the demands of its members as presented by JOHESU within the seven days of the warning strike as was done to other bodies in the health sector, the next line of action would be decided in due course by the expanded National Executive Council of JOHESU.

” That rather than call JOHESU for dialogue to resolve the trade dispute, the Federal Government has resorted to intimidation and blackmail of JOHESU leaders using all forms of instruments and faceless organisations.”

JOHESU reiterated that it will continue to use all legitimate means to defend the rights and demands for the welfare of its members in the health sector.

It would be recalled that the Joint Health Sector Unions JOHESU embarked on a seven day nation wide strike on the mid night of September 13, 2020 following federal government failure to meet up with its demands on some of its outstanding allowances.
