Just In: Health Workers Protest In Abuja, Threaten Strike

The Joint Health Sector Union members on Wednesday morning protested in Abuja with a threat to embark on an indefinite strike from midnight if the Federal Government failed to meet their demand for agreed benefits of cadres.

The union demands the payment of hazard allowance, an adjustment in the Consolidated Health Salary Structure as done with Consolidated Medical Salary Structure.

Members of the union were seen with different placards in their hands with inscriptions, ‘We want adjustment of CONHESS as was done for CONMESS’, and, ‘FMoH should stop discrimination in health industry’.

The JOHESU National Vice Chairman, Obinna Ogbonna, who spoke on behalf of the group, lamented the issues arising in the cadre.
