On 22/Aug/2013 / In Medical Advertorials
Dear Colleagues, As a result of the obvious unwillingness of the Federal Ministry of Health to obey and comply with the judgement of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) regarding the withdrawal of the obnoxious Non-skipping of CONHESS 10 Circular; Consultants/Specialists allowance circular and non-implementation of the 2009 Collectively bargained agreement as enshrined in the CONHESS Circular, the Joint Health Sector Unions have resolved to embark on an idefinite and comprehensive industrial action to press home our demands.
2. The Hon. Minister of Health has refused to respond to the 21-day Ultimatum earlier submitted to him by the Unions and the Assembly of Healthcare Professional Associations. Neither the Minister nor the his officials attended the mediation meeting surmoned by the Hon. Minister of Labour & Productivity yesterday to address the issues raised by labour in the ultimatum.
3. The continued violation of statutory schemes of service and collectively bargainged and signed agreement by the authorities in the FMOH and hospitals in Nigeria will no longer be tolerated. It has therefore become imperative that we have no choice than to withdraw services to press home our demands in line with the strike directive by the Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESU).
4. You are hereby directed to commence full withdrawal of services as from 12 midnight on Wednesday, 21st August, 2013. This action will continue until you receive further directives from us.
5. You are to network with other Associations and Unions in ensuring that there is effective and comprehensive compliance with this national directive. Solidarity for ever. Victory is certain. Thank you.
