Bauchi Health Workers Embark On Indefinite Strike Over Salary Deductions

Bauchi State health workers, under the Joint Health Sector Union and Assembly of Health Care Professionals (JOHESU), have commenced an indefinite strike today (Thursday, August 6, 2020).

This is due to the unilateral deductions of the workers’ June salaries by the state government, according to the state Secretary, Usman Danturaki.

A statement sent to all branch chairmen and secretaries, Medical and Health Workers’ Union, Bauchi State on Wednesday reads: “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 4th August, 2020, you are hereby directed to commence an indefinite strike action from 12.00am of Thursday, 6th August, 2020 until further directed.”
