Health union rules out industrial action
Prof Isaac Adewole
The Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria
(MHWUN) says it will not embark on another strike
but will give government enough time to address
Chairman of the union, Mr Ibrahim Attai disclosed
this in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria
(NAN) on Friday in Lagos.
Atai, who was speaking on the called-off strike by
the National Agency for Food Drug Administration
and Control (NAFDAC)â€™ workers, said the effects of
the strike on the nation were better imagined.
â€œWe will give government more time to resolve all
our grievances, we believe in the governmentâ€™s
ability to this.
â€œWe cannot afford to go on another strike because
last time we went on strike the agency lost
substantial amount of revenue.
â€œGoing on another full strike would give room for
unscrupulous people to perpetrate their evil acts,
bringing in all manner of adulterated products into
â€œNAFDAC workers had been ordered to return to
work and be law abiding. Our services are critical
to the Nationâ€™s economy and health,â€™â€™ he said
NAN reports that the union had earlier called on
their members to return to work on Friday after
embarking on seven days warning strike.
