Strike: ‘We exhausted all avenues for dialogue’

Health workers, under the aegis of Joint Health Sector Union (JOHESU), Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Enugu chapter, have said that there will be no going back on the strike embarked upon by the workers except all arrears of salaries are paid.
Speaking in Enugu, the Chairman, Nigeria Union of Allied Health Professionals and Secretary Trade Union Congress, TUC, Enugu State chapter, Ben Asogwa, said they exhausted all avenues for dialogue with the management to no avail.
He said they had no choice than embark on the action, which has grounded activities at the hospital.

The workers under JOHESU had earlier issued a 21-day ultimatum to the management of the hospital over a litany of issues.
This was followed by another 7-day ultimatum, which has also expired.

JOHESU’s ultimatum borders on withheld salaries and arrears from February 2017 till date; withheld promotion arrears, withheld teaching allowance and enrolment of the hospital into the Integrated Payroll Personnel Information System, IPPIS.
The ultimatum was signed by Comrades Ozurumba Anthony, Onu Bank-Anthony, Sims Nwagwu, Ugwu Eric. A. Eze Mathew and Oduru Friday on behalf of the JOHESU affiliate bodies.

It was followed by another one by the University Graduates of Nursing Science Association (UGONSA), and signed by its President, Chief S.E.O Egwuenu and the Secretary, Nurse Goodluck Nshi.
The group said if the current situation at the hospital was not checked, it will result in a breach of peace and a breakdown of law and order, adding that peace would not return to the hospital without the immediate implementation of the report of a panel earlier sent to the hospital by the minister.
