The Joint Health Sector Union, LAUTECH Teaching Hospital,
Ogbomoso, has appealed to the Oyo state government to restore its salary
in full and pay all outstanding arrears since January 2016.
JOHESU, in a statement signed by union representatives, Mr
Lawal Abiodun, Mrs Akanbi Serifat, Mrs Oluwakemi Ogundipe, Mrs Ojebode
Funmilayo and Mr Olowo Mahmud, said the workers were being owed eight
and a half months salary as of May 2017 when it last was paid half
Furthermore, the union debunked notions that the management
of the hospital had accepted responsibility for paying staff salary
since subvention was halved by the state government in January 2016.
This is just as the union urged the state government not to downsize in view of the ongoing restructuring.
JOHESU however said that it anyone indicted in the ongoing
investigation should be brought to book, noting that the union would not
shield anyone found complicit.
It would be recalled that union recently embarked upon a protest to press home its demands.
