Nigerian Medical Association, Benue Chapter, Commence 7-day Warning Strike

The Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, Benue chapter, has issued a seven-day warning strike beginning from midnight of October 3, to protest government’s failure to pay their outstanding salary arrears.

This is contained in a statement jointly signed by association’s Chairman and Secretary, Obekpa Obekpa and Nwaeze Chukwuemeka, respectively.

The statement, issued on Tuesday in Makurdi, indicated that the strike would exclude private hospitals.

The union leaders said the commencement of the warning strike became necessary following the breakdown of negotiations with the management of the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) after the expiration of a 21-day ultimatum.

The association, therefore, directed all government health institutions in the state to comply with the warning strike, excluding private hospitals and faith-based hospitals in the first stage of the strike.

The congress further commended its members for their patience, despite the protracted unfavourable working conditions and serial breach of collective agreements by the Benue Government and management of FMC, Makurdi.
