Doctors Declare an indefinite strike over Salary structure.
Just in, Doctors Declare an indefinite strike over Salary structure.
The Strike started on Friday, 18th of February 2022 after the two unions come to an agreement.
Doctors of Plateau State Specialist Hospital just embark on strike due to poor salary structure, which shows that there is an illegal deduction and fraudulent act going on.
Following the Level express government’s refusal to resolve major problems, for example, compensation structure, illicit allowances, the specialists at the Level State Expert Clinic under the aegis of Relationship of Inhabitants Specialists (ARD) and Clinical and Dental Advisors Relationship of Nigeria (MDCAN) have left on an “absolute and endless strike”.
Review that, last December, the two associations suspended their arranged hit after consultations with the state’s Head of Common Assistance, the Service of Wellbeing, and other basic partners. In any case, the arrangements from the gathering have not been met.
A portion of the issues in the conflict are:
- Removal of Doctors from agreed Salary structure
The Consolidated Medical Salary Structure (CONMESS) which ab initio doctors in Plateau Specialist Hospital take home is only a percentage of what other doctors were given in other tertiary teaching hospitals across the country, awaiting when fortunes of the state got better.
- This (incomplete) CONMESS salary structure as agreed upon for doctors has been initially mutilated and eventually eliminated. Both unions are unclear about the present salary structure being implemented.
- Ineffective method of payment of allowances
Both unions are completely dissatisfied with the manner in which bite sizes of their allowances are being mutilated.
- Failure of the government to remit dues deducted from their salary accounts to the respective bodies.
