COVID-19 Allowance/Lingering Issues: Nationwide Strike Declared By JOHESU


Members of the Joint Health Workers Union (JOHESU) were on Saturday (yesterday) directed to withdraw their services and embark on a nationwide strike starting from midnight on Sunday, September 13, 2020.

The directive became imperative after the National Executive Council (NEC) of the union held a meeting yesterday.

In a statement on Sunday (today), JOHESU explained that it gave the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) one week to address all lingering issues and nothing concrete had been achieved.

The Union specifically asked the FGN to address the failures and decaying infrastructure in the health sector and pay the shortfall in COVID-19 hazard allowances for their members.

JOHESU is further asking for the adjustment of the Consolidated Health Salary Structure, implementation of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria consent judgment and other court judgments, and pay all outstanding salary arrears.
