MEDICAL PERSONNEL ISSUES 14-DAY STRIKE ACTION ULTIMATUM

Medical personnel in Ondo State have issued a 14-day ultimatum to the State Government ahead of

its proposed industrial strike action.


This was announced in a statement by Dr. Aina Oluwafemi, the chairman of the National Association of Government General Medical and Dental Practitioners, Ondo State Chapter, after a meeting yesterday.


Dr. Aina said the Government had slashed their May salaries for reasons best known to them.

He also stated that the Government had refused to pay their January 2017 arrears.


“Government had, through an official press release, social media, and circular to relevant government agencies announced the approval for immediate implementation, the payment of the 50 percent basic salary as special COVID-19 hazard allowances, for all health workers, three months in the first instance.


“Government failed to implement the said pronouncements when the May salary was paid.


“Rather, doctors observed that their salaries were slashed in May. As much as 2.5 percent of their consolidated basic salary was removed for reasons best known to the State Government.


“Doctors in Ondo State are, as we speak, angry and very low in spirit.


“To this end, the State Executive Council of our association had issued a 14-day ultimatum to the Ondo State Government, to tell us, why we have to part with 2.5 percent of our basic salaries and the unsolicited deduction be refunded with immediate effect,’’ Dr. Aina Oluwafemi said.
