Kogi State Chapter of the
Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria, (MHWUN) on Thursday told Kogi State government that it could no longer settle for percentage salary payment for its members.

The Union made their position known in Lokoja, headquarters of Kogi State that percentage payment to their members at the Local Government Areas by the Kogi State Government will no longer be acceptable.

The Executive Council of the Union also noted that it couldn’t guarantee industrial harmony between the Health Workers and the State government in the circumstance that percentage salary payment is not stopped immediately.

In a statement issued after the Executive Council meeting of MHWUN which was signed by Comrade Rlse Momoh said there was need for synergy between the union and government, adding that the call for government to improve on the welfare of workers became necessary in view of the continued hardship being faced by its members across the state. adsbygoogle || []).push({});

While appealing to the Kogi State Government to revisit the issue of percentage payment, and treat their demands with utmost urgency, Comrade Momoh stressed that, despite the contributions of the health workers in the state, it appeared that such contributions were yet to be acknowledged.

The Health Workers further added that the workers had always endangered their lives as service to God and humanity, saying “their monthly take home pay could no longer sustain their families”.

She explained that most deaths of its members were attributed to poverty, urging government to critically look into their peculiar challenges.

The Medical and Health Workers Union said the National headquarters has been intimated on the development and enjoined all relevant stakeholders, including religious leaders and traditional rulers to call on government to do the needful.
