Do not go on strike – FG warns resident doctors
The Federal Government has issued a warning to the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) to abandon their planned five-day warning strike.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, received a letter from the NARD executive on the proposed strike and described it as illegal.
The strike is scheduled to begin on May 16, but Ngige advised the doctors to attend a meeting with the Minister of Health instead of embarking on the strike.
He also warned that the strike would result in the withholding of pay for the five days, and urged the doctors to consider the ILO principles of decent work and the protection of lives.
Ngige denied the claim that the Federal Government did not pay minimum wage consequential adjustment arrears to their members and advised the doctors not to talk about a 200 per cent pay rise, as it was not feasible.
