Health workers give govt 15 days to address welfare
The Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) and Assembly of Healthcare Professional Associations (AHPA) have given the Federal Government 15 days to meet their demands.
The agitators want a review of the “defective implementation of COVID-19 special inducement and hazard allowance, payment of all withheld salaries of members, including the suspended April and May 2018 salaries and adjustment of Consolidated Health Salary Structure (CONHESS) as was done with Consolidated Medical Salary Structure (CONMESS) since 2014.”
Also, the groups called for action on the National Industrial Court of Nigeria’s consent judgment and other rulings.
In a letter to the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, JOHEUS president, Comrade Joy Josiah, alleged that government had not “deemed it fit to honour the terms of settlement entered into with JOHESU on September 30, 2017, especially the upward review of CONHESS salary structure as agreed, to be completed within five weeks from that date, among other requests.”
