1 min read

Members of the Joint Health Workers Union of Nigeria of the University Ilorin Teaching Hospital have commenced an indefinite strike over non-payment of promotion allowances.

The Chairman of the JOHESU-UITH chapter, Mr Olutunde Oluwawumi, who declared the industrial action during an emergency congress of the union in Ilorin, said workers were owed series of arrears.

Oluwawumi said members unanimously agreed to embark on the indefinite strike at a congress held within the hospital premises and they would not return to work until the management paid at least three years of promotion arrears.

The members, sang solidarity songs, displayed placards with the inscriptions including “enough of out of drugs and consumables,” enough of mal-administration by human resources officers.”

While reacting to the strike, the hospital’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Olabisi Ajiboye, said the management would look into the matter with a view to addressing their grievances.

The development is coming on the heels of the ongoing strike by members of the Association of Resident Doctors of the teaching hospital which has entered its third week.
