The meeting between the striking joint health workers union and the Federal Government last night ended in a deadlock.
The reconciliation meeting which was held at the instance of the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, and his health counterpart Professor Issac Adewole, was aimed at ending the nationwide strike, which started 30 days ago.
The aggrieved health workers led by JOHESU chairman, Biobelemoye Josiah, were agitated over the alleged uncomplimentary remarks made by some members of the Federal Government’s team.
According to the agitated JOHESU team, the proposal to restructure the salary scale in favour of the Medical doctors, was unacceptable.
Recall that JOHESU had on the 17th April, this year directed all its members to withdraw their health services in all the federal health institutions.
Meanwhile, the negotiation meeting is expected to continue by 1pm today Thursday May 17.
