The Chairperson, Joint Health Workers Union, Dr. Ayuba Wabba, has said the union will begin a three-day warning strike on January 23.

Wabba said this in an interview with theNews Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Saturday.

He said the strike is aimed at getting the government to fully and unconditionally implement all agreements it signed with the union.

“It is also for the immediate review of CONHESS and release of circular to take effect from 1/1/14, the same way done to CONMESS,” she said.

The chairperson also directed the members to proceed on the strike adding the notice had been dispatched to all unions and associations.

“We are going on the strike because government is not serious with us. We have found out that they are not committed to the implementation of the National Industrial Court order.

Wabba also said government had failed to address issue of the cancellation of consultancy appointment for his members as ordered by the court.

He explained that members like other health professionals had been enjoying the appointment as contained in a circular on appointment of consultants Ref. No. SMH. 491/S.2/Vol.II/221 of 29th March 1976.

He added that the ministry suddenly issued a unilateral circular stopping the appointment of other health professionals as consultants.

He said JOHESU believed that the decision was influenced by the Nigeria Medical Association.

Wabba, added the union would not call off the strike until all agreements reached with government since May 2010 and to date were implemented unconditionally.

“They must release circular commensurate to what they released to other health professionals, then we can call off the strike.”
