1. LUTH Nurses Suspend 52-Day-Old Strike, May Lose Salaries
Nurses at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) Idi-Araba, Lagos, on Tuesday suspended its 52-day-old strike as members returned to duty posts. But they may lose their salaries because of the ‘no-work no-pay’ rule.
The pressmen gathered that the ‘no work no-pay’ rule of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government has taken effect in all government institutions.The nurses under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) LUTH Chapter on June 10, 2016, began an indefinite action to protest, among other things, lack of promotion for members and non-payment of salary arrears. Chairman of NANNM at LUTH, Mrs. Oluwayemisi Adelaja, said: “We are back to work because some of the issues have been resolved while others are receiving the attention of the Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH). Our demand for promotion of members is receiving the attention of the minister.”
