Delta State University Teaching Hospital, DELSUTH Nurses Embark on Indefinite Strike

Nurses in Delta State University Teaching Hospital, DELSUTH, will, today, commence an indefinite strike action to protest the state government’s alleged refusal to pay two months salary arrears owed to 60 of its staff since 2009.

Delta State Chapter of National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives, NANNM, in a statement by its Secretary, Mr. Olabode Akinfenwa, said that the association’s position, directing its members in DELSUTH to embark on an indefinite strike from today, was because of the the government’s alleged lip service towards the salary arrears for 60 nurses after their employment in 2009, which the association insisted was a breach of agreement.

The statement alleged that the nurses were asked to buy uniforms provided by management of the hospital, which it noted, was an aberration and against the state employment policy for nurses and midwives, adding that the hospital cannot compel NANNM members to obey such a policy.
