Following the meeting of its National Executive Committee, NEC, today in Abuja, striking health workers under the auspices of the Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU), are expected to resume work on Thursday.

This was contained in a communiqué signed at the end of the NEC  of the Union. The communiqué was signed by JOHESU National Chairman, com. Biobelemoye Joy Josiah and national secretary, com. Florence Ekpebor

The communiqué stayed that, “sequel to the receipt of the agreed circulars as part of the terms of settlement reached between the Federal Government and the Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU), on Saturday 30th September, 2017, to end the strike which was suspended in principle, after the signing of the terms of settlement; a special meeting of the National Executive Committee, NEC, of the unions in JOHESU rose today, 3rd October, 2017, and resolved to inform members that copies of the signed agreement as well as the released circulars from the Federal Ministry of Health are being sent to all unions and branches of the unions comprising JOHESU.

All branches are to hold their congresses  on Wednesday and bring the contents of the agreement and the circulars to the attention of members and thereafter, prepare to resume their duties on Thursday, 5th October, 2017.

The union thanked the government for building confidence into JOHESU membership by giving positive glimpses that they would redeem other contents of the terms of settlement agreed at the negotiation on 30th September, 2017, especially, the five weeks moratorium agreed for the review of the Consolidated Health Salary Structure, CONHESS, and other salient issues contained therein.
