FEDERAL HEALTH WORKERS BEGIN NATIONWIDE STRIKE TODAY

Federal health workers across the country under the aegis of the Joint Health Sector Unions says it will today embark on an indefinite strike following the failure of the Federal Government to implement the agreement it reached with health workers last year.

The union recalled that it called off its nationwide strike on September 30, 2017 after signing the memorandum of terms of settlement which was to be implemented within five weeks after the date of suspension of the strike.

It noted that its main demands included an upward review of the Consolidated Health Salary Structure, employment of additional health workers, the implementation of court judgments and the upward review of the retirement age from 60 to 65.

The union said since the Federal Government seemed not to take health workers seriously, it had no choice but to embark on strike.
