ABUTH Resident Doctors Embark on Warning Strike Over Unpaid Salaries

Published

on

– Non-payment of salaries owed to some resident doctors
– Five-day warning strike commenced on Monday
– Demands include repayment of withheld salaries and implementation of CONMESS upward review

The National Association of Resident Doctors at Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH) has begun a five-day warning strike, effective Monday, to protest the non-payment of salaries owed to some of its members.

The strike follows the expiration of a one-week ultimatum given to the hospital management on July 15.

The affected doctors, who were paid in percentage in June, are being owed salary arrears for 2021, amounting to N58,000 to N60,000 each.

The association is demanding the repayment of these withheld salaries, as well as the implementation of the 25% CONMESS upward review of salaries for members on the GIFMIS platform.

The hospital management had proposed to pay N2 million monthly from the overhead cost to offset the arrears of accoutrement allowance, which translates to N5,000 per member monthly.

However, the association is seeking N25,000 per member, as is the practice in over 60% of Federal Tertiary Health institutions in the North West zone.

The association is also demanding the payment of accrued allowances, including the arrears of accoutrement allowance, which has been pending since 2021.

The strike is expected to affect medical services at the hospital, with the association warning of further industrial action if their demands are not met.
