Bauchi Health Workers Down Tool Over Salary Deductions



The Joint Health Sector Union and the Assembly of Healthcare Professionals, Bauchi State chapter, has said that it will commence an indefinite strike action from Thursday, 6 August 2020. 


The union said the development was to protest the unilateral and annoying deductions made by the state government in its June salaries.

The union made this known in a statement by its state Secretary, Usman Danturaki, to all branch chairmen and secretaries, Medical and Health Workers’ Union, Bauchi State. 

The statement dated 5 August 2020 and titled ‘Commencement of strike action by JOHESU members’, read thus:

“Following the inability of government to reverse its decision on the deductions unilaterally made in the month of June, coupled with its blatant refusal to offer any convincing reason as a rationale behind the deductions despite series of promises made.

Based on the resolution reached at the state executive council meeting held on 4 August, 2020, you are hereby directed to commence an indefinite strike action from 12.00am of Thursday, 6 August, 2020 until further directed,”
