NLC, NANNM threaten strike over salary arrears



The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) have threatened to embark on strike if government fails to pay their two-month salary arrears.

Speaking at the opening of this year’s International Nurses and Midwives Week in Abuja, National President of NANNM, Musa Mamman, explained that two months salaries of health workers, especially nurses and midwives were still being owed since after the strike embarked upon by NLC to demand implementation of agreements Federal Government earlier reached with them.

Mamman advocated a unified scheme of service for nurses and midwives and appointment of a substantive Director of Nursing Services in the Ministry of Health and payment of teaching allowance to their members on CONHESS 7 & 8.

Also speaking, NLC President, Ayuba Waba, said nurses were the backbone of any health sector and urged them to imbibe the spirit of teamwork.
