Healthcare workers at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, on Monday, joined the nationwide strike called by the Joint Health Sector Union (JOHESU).

It was reported that many essential places in the hospital, including the pharmacy, the medical records section and two of the main gates into the hospital were locked. The JOHESU Chairman, UCH Chapter, Mr Adeolu Alli, said the strike became imperative after “a long period” — three years of waiting on the Federal Government.

He said that the government has seemingly taken the patience of the striking workers for granted. “We are on strike at the moment and our members have gone home. “The level of compliance is almost 98 per cent.

The government must meet our demands. “On September 30, 2017, there was an agreement with the Federal Government on some of these issues most especially the adjustment of our salary structure. “Three months later, that was April and May 2018, we had to go on strike again because the government failed to fulfil its part of the agreement,” he said.

According to him, JOHESU makes up over 94 per cent of workers in the government-owned hospitals. “JOHESU is made up of over 94 per cent of workers in the hospitals, except doctors.
