It has be reported by punch newspaper that Olabisi Onabanjo Univeristy Teaching Hospital Association of Resident Doctors has said it’s workers will embark on a 3 days warning strike.
In a letter written to Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun on Sunday the ARD OOUTH, explained that the warning strike became imperative following the alleged refusal of the government to yield to its agitations on the need to better its members’ welfare.
It is contained in the letter that the doctors association express their displeasure in the way Ogun state government handles their welfare.
“There has been no commitment whatsoever from the government on the issue of Appropriate Remuneration, Entry Level, New Minimum Wage, Hazard allowance and Life Insurance for our members.”
The whole house is very much displeased with the government on issues that bother on our agitations and welfare. “We are perturbed with the non-committal response from the government despite repeated calls and letters to get their attention.
Despite the inadequate response of Ogun State Government to the Health risks confronted by our members during this COVID-19 pandemic, our members went ahead to continue their work diligently in their various departments and at the Isolation Centre. “We were taken aback by the arbitrary change in only hazard allowance to be given as COVID-19 Special Hazard Allowance to all health workers. The 200 per cent increase in hazard allowance is just an increase from N5000 to N15,000 for just the month of April.
