The Kwara state chapters of joint council of Medical and Health workers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN) in collaboration with National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) today called off their warning strike .
It will be recalled that the health workers had on Monday midnight commenced a three day warning strike to express their grievances for the inability of the Kwara state government to pay ten percent increase on the existing fifty percent consolidated health structure (CONHESS) to their members in the local government level.
Speaking on the development on Thursday, the Kwara state Chairman of NANNM, Comrade Joseph Adekanye said the state government is sensitive to the plight of the union and has called for a stakeholders meeting.
According to Adekanye, the Kwara state Head of Service, Mrs. Susan Modupe Oluwale with her team pleaded with the union on behalf of the government for a week to see what can be done in respect of their demands. Adekanye therefore urged patients at various medical facilities to endure with the union as the union is fighting for the betterment of hospital facilities in the state.
