The Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) has suspended its 7-day warning strike.
In a statement signed by JOHESU national chairman, Com. Biobékenmoye Joy Josiah, he said the union will hold its expanded National Executive Council (NEC) to decide the next line of action as government has failed to meet its demands during the warning strike.
He urged members of the unions to resume work today and await further directives.
He said, “This is to bring to your notice that the 7-day nationwide warning strike embarked by the members of the Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) ended on midnight of 20th September, 2020. By this notice, 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.
“It is pertinent to also inform members of the press and the general public 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 will continue to use all legitimate means to defend the rights and demands for the welfare of its members in the health sector.”
