Health Workers on Wednesday protested in the Federal Capital Territory with a threat to embark on an indefinite strike from midnight if the Federal Government fails to meet their demands.
The workers under the umbrella of the Joint Health Workers Union are demanding the payment of hazard allowance, an adjustment in the Consolidated Health Salary Structure as done with Consolidated Medical Salary Structure.
They are also demanding an end to the discrimination in the health industry among others.
Members of the union were seen brandishing placards with various inscriptions like ‘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, decried said several issues needed to be addressed as it concerns the union.
