#JOHESUStrike2018 Nigeria Withholds April Salaries of Striking Health Workers by katty : May 05, 2018, 06:19:38 AM
The Federal Government has withheld the salaries of members of the Joint Health Sectors Union, JOHESU for April.

In a letter from the FG to the health workers who are on strike over the inability of the government to meet their demands, the FG stated it has activated its “No work, No Pay” policy which sees workers not receiving their salaries for last month, April.



In the letter written and signed by the Head, Department of Hospital Services, Dr. J.O Amedu for the Minister of Health,  the FG said; “You will recall that the Joint Health Sectors Union(JOHESU) commenced a strike action on the midnight of Tuesday, 17th April 2018 despite all entreaties by the Government for them not to.

2. In line with provision of Section 43 of the Trade Dispute Act CAP 18, Law of the Federation of Nigeria(LFN), 2004 and the International Labour Organisation’s principles concerning employers’ right during strike in essential services, the Federal Government has invoked this Provision and is therefore enforcing “No Work, No Pay” law on Unions and Associations who decide to embark on strike without consideration of Government efforts to resolve their request. This directive is the decision of a High Level Body of Government Stakeholders chaired by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.(SGF)

3. I am directed to inform you to stop the April 2018 salary of all JOHESU workers who have defied Government by partaking in the strike. You are also directed to strictly keep the Attendance Register of all staff who are not partaking in the strike. As JOHESU workers in your institution are yet to be captured in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System(IPPIS) platform, you are to implement this directive of government on your GIFMIS platform.

4. Please, accept the assurances of the warm regards of the Honourable Minister.

Signed
Dr. J.O Amedu(mni)
Head, Department of Hospital Services
For: Honourable Minister
