Nigeria : Delta State Nurses Suspend Strike by Idowu Olabode : January 04, 2017, 10:46:43 AM
NURSES working with the Delta State Hospital Management Board have resumed work, following the suspension of their strike action.

It would be recalled that the nurses went on strike on December 23, 2016, over alleged shortage of manpower in the nursing section and non-payment of their promotion arrears among other issues.

The state Ministry of Health, in a statement by its Public Relations Officer, PRO, Mr Donald Ojebo said: “The industrial action was suspended on December 30, 2016 and full nursing services have commenced in the various hospitals in the state.”

Ojebo who quoted the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health, Dr.   Minnie Oseji in the statement, said the nurses  resumed work on January 2, 2017.

He said that the government would continue to explore all avenues to ensure peaceful co-existence in its hospitals, urging the nurses to cooperate with government to achieve the effective delivery of health services to Deltans.

“The strike action was embarked on after negotiations broke down between State Executives of the National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) Delta State Chapter and the relevant Government institutions over the nurses four point demands which include
(i) non-implementation of the panel’s report on the nurses/workers of Eku Baptist Hospital, Eku;
(ii) non-implementation of promotion of members carried out by the Board from CONNHESS 14 TO 15;
(iii) non-payment of arrears of salaries of nurses; and (iv) failure to address the acute shortage   of nurses in the state’s health facilities, the statement added.
