Following the recent pronouncement of National Leadership of JOHESU, suspending the Industrial Action embarked upon from Thursday,25th May,2023, till Monday,5th June,2023, let it be known to us at JOHESU State level, that the pronouncement was directed to only Federal Health Institutions across the Federation.
Comrades,you will recall in Communique issued at the end of State JOHESU Congress,held on Friday,2nd June,2023 at NLC State Secretariat, American Qrts, Agodi Ibadan, Oyo State in which some reasons for embarking on Industrial Action in the State were clearly stated.
In view of this, fellow Comrades, the strike action is still on at the state level until our all requests and demands are addressed by the State Government.
Reasons for Embarking on Industrial Action in the State as it affect JOHESU members are stated below:
1) That the recommendation of the Committee set up by the State Government, since 2021on issues affecting Joint Health Sector Unions & Assembly of Health Professionals Associations (JOHESU/AHPA) signed by Government representatives and Leadership of JOHESU on 9th August,2022 should be implemented.
2.) Review of Hazard Allowance as it has been approved and implemented by the Federal Government and some States of the Federation.
- Upward review of CONHESS salary structure as it was done to CONMESS in the State.
- Inclusion of other Health Professionals involved in teaching at our health facilities in the payment of Teaching Allowance.
In view of the above mentioned agitations, the leadership of JOHESU in our dear State recommends quick response and speedy action for the resolution of the ongoing Industrial Action.
