RE: COMMENCEMENT OF NATIONWIDE INDEFINITE INDUSTRIAL ACTION BY JOINT HEALTH SECTOR UNIONS (JOHESU): REQUEST TO BE ON RED ALERT.
I am directed to inform you that the nationwide indefinite Industrial Action by the Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU) at Federal Health Institutions has commenced and is effective.
That what the Federal Ministry of Health has done is to roll out draconian threat to our members and directing Chief Medical Directors (CMDs) and Medical Directors (MDs) of the Federal Health Institutions to apply NO WORK NO PAY, and employ locum staff instead of doing the needful to end the strike as soon as possible.
In the light of the above, State Councils are directed to give their State Governments fourteen (14) days ultimatum and solicit for their intervention without which, the strike will commence at the expiration of the ultimatum 8th May 2018. State Councils are requested to hold their emergency State Executive Council (SEC) and Unit Branch meetings in final preparation to join the strike on 9th May 2018 if Federal Government fails to meet our demands.
All Nurses and Midwives are to note that the effectiveness of this strike will determine the survival or otherwise of the Nursing profession in Nigeria.
Nurses and Midwives at the States and Local Government level are by this letter directed to mobilize all our members to be at red alert to join the strike on 9th May 2018 at 12 midnight.
The National Secretariat of our union and JOHESU appreciate the courage and loyalty of our members Nationwide and called on them to persevere until our aim is achieved.
Please accept the warm regards and assurances of National Secretariat.
Deputy General Secretary
