Court tells health workers to stop strike

The National Industrial Court on Friday, in Abuja, asked the Nigerian Union of Allied Health Professionals to end its indefinite strike which began on March 6.

Justice Benedict Kanyip issued a restraining order to the body, to stop the industrial action until the result of a substantive suit filed by the federal ministry of health is out.

The Lawyer representing the ministry, Lloyd-Benson Iboroma told the court that the striking workers render indispensable services and the ongoing action is inimical to the country. Iboroma

Iboroma said that meetings were held with the union so that their demands are met. He also disclosed that the defendant did not come to court despite being served with notices.

The striking body NUAHP comprises of dental therapists, medical physicists, health information officials, clinical psychologists and medical social workers.

The General Secretary of NUAHP, Mr Obisesan Oluwatuyi said some of their grievances are stagnation, non-implementation of a court judgement since 2014 on the adjustment of COHESS salary structure, non-payment of arrears and others.
