BREAKING: Health Workers to Begin Strike – aunews

The Health workers under the umbrella of Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) will withdraw services from midnight of Sunday, September 13, 2020. Recall that the Federal Government at a conciliatory meeting brokered by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, on Thursday had announced it had an agreement with the unions. JOHESU leaders, at the end of the meeting which had Minister of State, Labour, Festus Keyamo (SAN); Minister of State, Health, Olorunnimbe Mamora; JOHESU Chairman, Biobelemoye Josiah, and other officials in attendance, were given Saturday 12, September 2020 to report back to the government team. But in a statement on Sunday morning jointly signed by the leaders of various health unions in the sector, JOHESU said it would proceed with its planned strike following the inability of the Federal Government to meet its demands. The union said it took the decision at the end of its expanded National Executive Council on Saturday.
