The statement dated August 5th, 2020 had its title as ‘Commencement of strike action by JOHESU members’.
 
“Following the inability of government to reverse its decision on the deductions unilaterally made in the month of June, coupled with its blatant refusal to offer any convincing reason as a rationale behind the deductions despite series of promises made; based on the resolution reached at the state executive council meeting held on 4th August, 2020, you are hereby directed to commence an indefinite strike action from 12.00am of Thursday, 6th August, 2020 until further directed,” the statement read.
