Kaduna Health Workers Threaten Indefinite Strike
BY PRECIOUS ADI
Officials of the health workers in Kaduna State under the Joint Health Sector Unit on Thursday threatened to begin an indefinite strike from March 1, 2014 if the state government fails to meet their demands.
JOHESU’s Chairman, Mrs. Cecilia Musa, at the secretariat of the union, said that the strike remained the only option opened to the union to push for the implementation of the balance of 30 per cent Consolidated Health Salary Structure, CONHESS being an unfulfilled promise by the state government.
She added that a meetings between officials of the union and the state government on February 3, 2014 and February 25, 2014 were deadlocks, saying that based on these, the union had no other option than to ask its members to shut down its tools until the government responds to their demands.
She said“based on the failure of the government to implement the CONHESS salary scale,the union leaders met with members and resolved that the health workers in the state should continue with the earlier suspended strike as from midnight of February 28.”
