Nigeria: LAUTECH Teaching Hospital Nurses Protest by Idowu Olabode : October 29, 2016, 05:07:45 PM
Following the non-payment of salaries of members of staff of Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital (LAUTECH), Ogbomosho for eight months, the National Association Of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), LAUTECH Teaching Hospital, Ogbomosho chapter has embarked on a three day warning protest and industrial action which started on Wednesday 26th Oct , 2016 to register their displeasure over the non-payment of salary of the staff nurses of the Teaching Hospital.

The protest will lead to an indefinite strike on the third day, Friday 28th if no positive action is taken by the management of the hospital and the Oyo state government as to proffer solution to the nagging issue.
Speaking with the NANNM Lautech Teaching Hospital Vice Chairman, Com. Oyewunmi Zaccheus Opeyemi, he said the Oyo state government has been owing them eight months’ salary.

Oyewumi lamented that half salary of January salary was paid shortly after NLC Oyo State called her strike in late August. He further stated that after the payment of half of January’s salary in late August, the (NANNM) executives proceeded to meet with the government to negotiate how to manage the saga, meeting with the commissioner for Finance and Commissioner for health in which they were assured to be calm as the two commissioners will discuss the issue with the Governor.
However, he said to their surprise they received the half salary of February again in September which prompted them again to meet with the management.

Oyewumi while speaking said, “The management however promised to proffer a solution so we trusted them again after they paid half of March salary in late September and we as a body told the management that if we should receive half of April salary they will see our other side; but the stroke that broke the camel’s back was again when we received another half salary alert of April.

“This was what led to the an emergency congress by (NANNM) where decision of the three days protest and by 12pm on the third day we would embark on an indefinite strike.”
