The Joint Health Sector Union (JOHESU) says it has commenced an indefinite strike.
General Secretary of the Nigerian Union of Allied Health Professionals (NUAHP), Mr Obisesan Oluwatuyi stated this on Wednesday in Abuja.
Mr Oluwatuyi said the strike would continue until government meets their demands.
“No retreat, no surrender until government does the needful”.
President of JOHESU, Mr Josiah Biobelemoye, said the industrial action was due to, “insensitivity and lackadaisical attitude of ‘drivers’ of the health sector’’.
He listed their demands to include upward adjustment of CONHESS Salary Scale, arrears of skipping of CONHESS 10 and employment of additional health professionals.
Other demands are upward review of retirement age from 60 to 65 years.
