Joint health sector unions to protest alleged tyranny against health workers in Nigeria


By Chika Onyesi

The Joint Health Sector unions have resolved to stage a national rally in Abuja to draw attention to alleged tyranny of the federal government against health workers in all health facilities across the country.

The rally slated to hold on the 4th of February 2019 will draw JOHESU branch representatives from federal health institutions and state secretariats of JOHESU member unions.

In a statement signed by the health workers union leadership, the decision to rally follows careful consideration of its January 31st ultimatum to the federal government to meet some its demands.

The union’s grievance include; unjustified withholding of salaries of JOHESU members for April and May 2018, Non adjustment of CONHESS salary structure, headship of hospital departments, implementation of  consultancy cadre for its members and punitive action against its members in FMC Owerri and JUTH.

According to JOHESU, the national rally will be held in collaboration with the Trade Union Congress, TUC and The Nigerian Labour Congress NLC
