1 Mins read

Doctors employed by the Lagos State Government will commence a three-day warning strike on Monday over non-compliance with their demands.

This was made known on Sunday by the Chairman of the Medical Guild, Lagos, Dr Oluwajimi Sodipo.

According to the Lagos State doctors, they were embarking on the strike after the ultimatum given to the Lagos State Government expired.

Sodipo said the wage disparity between the federal and Lagos doctors was part of their demands.

He revealed that doctors working in the COVID-19 isolation centres are still being owed two months’ salaries.

Sodipo said, “Following the emergency congress of the Medical Guild held on June 27, we resolved that the previous 21 days ultimatum given to the state government be extended by a further two weeks during which representative council meeting should be held to review the resolutions of the congress and activate the three-day warning strike if 70 per cent of the Guild’s demands are not met.”

“The issues of COVID-19 hazard allowance and inducement allowances MOU approved by the federal government to her doctors have not been approved by the Lagos State Government to her doctors.

“The doctors working in the COVID-19 isolation centres are still being owed two months’ salaries which have remained unpaid at the moment. They are also being unceremoniously disengaged without recourse to their welfare.

“The issue of shortage of doctors in the health facilities are yet to be resolved and with no substantive action taken by the state government t resolve the issue,” he added.
