LAUTECH hospital workers protest unpaid salaries

The workers of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso, Oyo State, at the weekend protested unpaid salary.



They said they were last paid in January last year.

The workers, who caused gridlock, carried placards with inscriptions, such as: “LAUTECH workers dying of hunger”, “Enough is enough since 2016”, “Ajimobi don’t wait for God’s wrath”, “Ajimobi please pay our salaries in full”, etc.

Addressing reporters, the Secretary of Unions LAUTECH Teaching Hospital, Lawal Abiodun, said the problem began in January last year, adding that it was borne out of the government’s stance that LAUTECH was an educational institution that could generate fund internally from students’ tuition fees.He said the unions made the government to understand that the students paid into the school’s coffers.

Lawal said: “LAUTECH Teaching Hospital (LTH), Ogbomoso has been wrongly classified by the Oyo State government as one of the tertiary institutions that has students from whom the institution collects tuition fees. LTH does not collect fees from LAUTECH students, who use the hospital for their clinical training. They pay their fees to the university. Hence LTH Ogbomoso cannot generate revenue from the students.

“As a result, the government since January last year has not paid the workers’ salaries, but subvention, which is not paid in full. This has made the institution to pay workers half salaries, making life difficult for them.

Last paid since January last year? Wow! That's about fifteen months of work without pay!So, to what use exactly has the budgetary allocation to the institution been put over this same period?
