According to him, another three-day ultimatum was given by the union, but despite all of these, the government never deemed it fit to call them for dialogue on how to resolve the issue.
He added that apart from outstanding salaries, the government is also owing to the health workers two months COVID-19 special allowance, as agreed in May 2020.
Adedire expressed that the congress of the union met and decided to withdraw their services indefinitely from all hospitals in the state as of Monday, 8th March 2021.
The health sector in Ondo state is currently facing a serious threat as the action of NUAHP following initial action by doctors in government payroll who are currently on indefinite strike.
The doctors have been on indefinite strike for over a month; while nurses and midwives recently resumed work following a three-day warning strike.
