Nurses and other healthcare workers at the National Orthopaedic Hospital Dala Kano today embarked on indefinite strike action. The strike is sequel to the 5 days warning strike that was embarked upon about two weeks ago. This action was taken to protest over the non payment of their three months salary.
According to the PRO of the National Association of Nigerian Nurses And Midwives Mr Attah James, the hospital management was yet to meet their demands but rather has seen fit to resort to the blatant intimidation of staff of the hospital. He called on the federal government and relevant bodies to speed up actions to pay the 3months arrears as this have brought untold hardship on their members. He affirmed that the indefinite strike action embarked upon will be suspended once they get paid their rightful dues for the 3months arrears.
