Members of the unions at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Teaching Hospital in Osogbo have agreed to suspend their strike action of almost two months.
This was contained in a communiqué, jointly signed by all workers’ unions in the employment of the hospital, and released on Friday after a joint meeting in Osogbo.
“The unions are agreeing to suspend the strike in honour of the Osun Governor, Rauf Aregbesola.
“This is also to allow further negotiations while all parties should keep to terms of agreements,’’ the communiqué stated.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the terms of the agreements include the hospital management ensuring the payment of all outstanding salaries and deductions within two months.
Other agreements are as follows: “While the full implementation of the national health insurance scheme is awaited, the hospital shall adopt the voluntary contributory health insurance project, subject to review after a year.
“A committee should be constituted to determine and review welfare packages for staff.
“In order to sustain peace and industrial harmony, no member of staff shall be victimised for participating in the strike.
“A committee should be set up to ensure that prompt action is taken for full implementation of the conditions of service in respect of death while in service.’’
NAN recalls that members of staff of LAUTECH teaching hospital had been on strike before the recent commencement of the three-day warning strike called by the national body of health workers.
